Gas and water pipeline project to begin in Wilton

Aquarion Water and Eversource Energy are beginning construction this month on 1.8 miles of new water pipeline and two miles of new gas pipeline between New Canaan and Wilton. The joint project is expected to be completed by December. Burns Construction was awarded the contract for the project and three crews from the firm will complete the work. The Wilton phase of the project will start at the Belden Hill water tanks. Work will then “proceed approximately 1.8 miles southwest to the New Canaan town line at the Silvermine River,” according to Project Manager Dennis Fields. Future work may be done in New Canaan to extend the pipe further southwest through the town. Eversource Senior Project Manager Ken Zembrzuski said the company has invested $9 million into the project.
