Residents have overwhelmingly approved an Aquarion Water Company project that will eventually enable Ridgefield High School and Scotts Ridge Middle School to have access to public water. The project involves the installation of a structure to control water pressure at the intersection of Barlow Mountain Road and North Street. Construction is scheduled to take place from April 2023 to the fall. Aquarion will pay for the work, so there will be no cost to the town. Marconi said the water pressure in town is not going to change — either during or after construction. First Selectman Rudy Marconi said several years ago, due to contamination, the water main was also extended in town — down North Street, to serve both Barlow Mountain and Scotland elementary schools.
