New Fairfield considers selling town-owned water system to Aquarion

The New Fairfield Board of Selectmen has discussed the potential sale of the small town-owned municipal water system to Aquarion.  First Selectman Pat Del Monaco says the system provides water to six commercial customers in addition to Town buildings.  The sale has been discussed for the past several years.  Del Monaco says the town doesn't have the infrastructure or staffing to continue to operate the system. She says the equipment is aging and presents a liability for New Fairfield, as the municipality is responsible for providing potable water to all customers in the event of a system failure. Such failure could include an extended power outage or water main break.  Two water systems in New Fairfield are currently owned by Aquarion. Prior to any sale, there will be opportunity for public comment at a Public Hearing.  A date will then be set for a Town meeting to vote on approval of the sale.
