Aquarion Water Company is requesting that the City provide water to the company's Pearce Manor System. Danbury has provided a temporary Interconnection due to recent water quality concerns.
The system provides water service to 51 Danbury residents on Saddle Rock Road and Abigail Road. The average daily demand is about 6,600 gallons. Aquarion has requested entering into a long term agreement with the City.
Aquarion plans to abandon the wells due to ongoing water quality concerns and low pressure in the system. Customers would be served entirely from purchased water supplied by the Danbury Water System if an agreement is reached. The city has reached similar agreements for other lake communities.
The issue was sent to an ad hoc committee of the City Council.
