The following is a message sent from the Waterbury Bureau of Water, to the Mayor's Office, earlier today, September 1st, in the wake of power outages following Tropical Storm Irene.
Apparently the CT TV news is reporting that there are a number of water systems in the state that must boil their water first before using. We have received a number of calls on this within the last 1/2 hour.
Waterbury Water is fine - we have a conventional water treatment plant that is fully functioning and did not experience any disruptions.
(Acting Superintendent Of Water)
