CT Water Customers – October 17, 2016
Continued dry weather conditions have prompted Connecticut Water to ask customers in the communities of Guilford, Madison, Clinton, Westbrook and Old Saybrook to voluntarily reduce their water use 15%.
We have the operational flexibility to meet our customers’ needs, but given the extended dry weather conditions and no indication that these weather patterns will change, we felt it was important to ask our customers in these shoreline communities that have been most impacted by the drought and high summer demands to increase their conservation efforts. Conserving now will help us to ensure we have sufficient water to meet the needs of our customers and put less stress on local water resources.
Here are some specific things that customers can do to reduce their water use:
- Do not use any lawn irrigation systems
- Repair any leaky faucets or other areas
- Take showers instead of baths
- Use a broom to clean sidewalks and driveways rather than a garden hose.

Connecticut’s highest probability for a tropical storm or hurricane annually is August 15th to around November 1st.
