Aquarion Water Company today announced a water main cleaning program for the Stonington side of Mystic, to aid in minimizing discolored water during the seasonal start up of one of the company’s well stations.

The water main cleaning will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 30.  The streets in Mystic that will be affected by the water main cleaning are:

  • Clara Dr.
  • Coogan Blvd. to Route 27 ending at Old Mystic
  • Hendel Dr.
  • Lantern Hill Rd.
  • Latitude Circle
  • Main St.
  • Maritime Dr.
  • Michelle Lane
  • Mill St.
  • Nautilus Way
  • North Stonington Rd.
  • Route 184 (between Seaport Campground and Lantern Hill Rd.)
  • Whitehall Ave.
  • Whitehall Landing
  • Whitehall Pond

During the cleaning, 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.  Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear. We appreciate our customers’ understanding and patience.  For questions, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-732-9678.
