New Fairfield residents have approved the sale of a small town-owned water system to Aquarion.  Aquarion will pay $150,000 for the system, which provides water to six commercial customers in addition to Town buildings.  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, but Aquarion is regulated by several state agencies. Aquarion runs six small systems in New Fairfield and operates in 51  municipalities across Connecticut.
