This episode of “This Week in the City”, Mayor Dean Esposito speaks with Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola and Superintendent of Public Utilities David Day about Danbury’s water supply and drought conditions during the summer months.
The State of Connecticut has declared a Stage 2 drought condition.
Residents and businesses across the state are being asked to take the following actions to conserve water:
– Discontinue the irrigation of lawns and gardens
– Postpone planting of any new lawns or vegetation
– Minimize overall water use by fixing leaky plumbing and fixtures
– Discontinue washing vehicles and/or equipment
Due to high temperatures and minimal precipitation, these measures will become mandatory if we do not take action immediately.
Rest assured, Danbury has an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire suppression but due to these extremely high demands for water, residents may experience occasionally discolored water.
