Aquarion Water Company today announced a water main cleaning project in Darien from Monday, June 24 to Friday, July 19. The project is being undertaken to ensure that customers continue to receive the highest quality water.
The Darien water main cleaning project is estimated to last approximately four weeks. 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 tap 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.
Aquarion appreciates its customers’ understanding and patience during this project. Below is the schedule for the Darien water main cleaning project. Work is scheduled to take place from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.
Additionally, customers can access a regularly updated street schedule at www.aquarionwater.com under “Alerts and Outages” and on the company’s water main cleaning hotline at 1-800-203-7000.
For other questions, please call Aquarion’s Customer Service Center at 1-800-732-9678.
