A number of people have raised questions to Danbury officials about identifying the large water user on the City's westside, a commercial customer using roughly 100,000 gallons of water a day to water the grass. This came to light when Mayor Dean Esposito required commercial property owners and condominium complexes to cease using irrigation systems due to drought conditions. There are several customers with sprinkler connections, permitted by the City and all were asked for a voluntary usage reduction. In 24 to 36 hours, tank elevations on westside were drastically improved. Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola didn't disclose the large customer that uses a significant amount of water to maintain their grounds, but Esposito notes it's not Richter Golf. Iadarola added that development on westside is significantly more than in 2016, the last time there was a drought emergency.
