Aquarion: Shut Down Irrigation Systems

With a statewide drought continuing, the Aquarion Water Company, which serves Westport, today requested customers shut down sprinklers and irrigation systems for the season.

Aquarion’s reservoirs in the southwest region of the state are below half their capacity. And yet demand is running approximately 12.2 percent higher than for the same period last year, an announcement said.

“Due to the continuing drought and ongoing high water demand, Aquarion is asking customers to turn off sprinklers and irrigation systems for this season,” said Charles V. Firlotte, Aquarion president and CEO. “It is important for our customers to support these voluntary conservation measures, and to use our water resources wisely.”

This new request follows a previous customer alert and voluntary conservation request a month ago. (See WestportNow Sept. 24, 2015)
