Aquarion Water Company today announced a water main cleaning project in Darien starting Sunday, June 10 and continuing for six weeks between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

The water main cleaning project is being undertaken to ensure that customers continue to receive the highest quality water.

— an announcement from Aquarion

The Darien water main cleaning project is estimated to last until Friday, July 20. During that time, customers may notice some discoloration in their water. This discoloration results from the temporary disturbance of the water flow, which stirs up naturally occurring minerals that settle in water mains.

Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking.  Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored.  Before resuming use, customers should run their cold-water faucets until the water appears clear.
