As a result of a new request by the Aquarion Water Company, the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) has issued a second water supply emergency order in Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan and Stamford. This is in accordance with Connecticut General Statute 25-32b allowing DPH to make this declaration.
This new order helps increase the likelihood of refilling the Greenwich and Stamford reservoir systems. As of Feb. 17, 2017, the Greenwich system was approximately 68% full, while the Stamford system measured 61% full. These systems are typically 88% full this time of year.
