New Fairfield officials will hold a Town Meeting on Monday for residents to vote on the sale of the small municipal water system owned by the Town to Aquarion.  The Planning Commission gave a positive referral.  The system provides water to six commercial customers in addition to Town buildings. Previous administrations have discussed a potential sale to Aquarion over the course of the past several years.  New Fairfield doesn't have the infrastructure or staffing to continue to operate the system. The equipment is aging and presents a liability for the town.  Concerns were raised during discussions about the sanitary easements and pumping limits in the proposed agreement of sale.  The regulated public utility gets oversight from the CT Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, the Department of Public Health and the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
