12/1/2016 - Fairfield Community Asked to Cut Back Indoor Water Use by 20% Due to State Drought

First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced today that Aquarion Water Company has issued a press release asking customers throughout the southwestern part of Connecticut, including Fairfield, to cut back on indoor water use by 20%.

Aquarion’s request is the result of a severe drought the State is facing. According to the Water Company, from Bridgeport to Greenwich, Aquarion’s reservoirs are between 15 and 60 % of capacity. It may take months of rainfall before reservoirs and wells return to normal capacity, which is why it’s so important for everyone to find new ways to save water.

Aquarion provides several easy, proven ways to “defeat the drought” by cutting back on indoor consumption.
