80 years ago, a young man with a lot of vision and apparently little fear started a bank in the midst of the Great Depression. That bank not only survived, it flourished. Today, Webster Bank - named after the young man who founded it, Harold Webster Smith - is a major Northeast financial institution that operates in several states. On Friday, Mayor O'Leary joined Jim and Cathy Smith and the entire Webster Bank Family in celebrating the bank's milestone. The Mayor praised the Smiths and their institution for all the great unheralded community work they continue to do. Mayor O'Leary also admitted that he often turns to Jim Smith for counsel and advice. Congratulations to Webster Bank and for doing things "the Webster Way." ... See MoreSee Less
Water main project to start on Southmayd Road
Waterbury Water Department is embarking on a water-line improvement project for Southmayd Road, part of its ongoing efforts to address the issue of aging infrastructure. This project will rehabilitate the cast iron water pipes, which range in age from 81 to 99 years old, but will also replace the shut off valves along the street. This will enable higher flow rates, improved water pressure and water quality, and will facilitate our ability to respond to future emergencies.
Waterbury Water and our contractor Heitkamp Inc, have scheduled work beginning the week of October 12, 2015 and concluding by mid-November, 2015. Crews will first set up a bypass, above-ground water main to serve all customers during the time that the buried water main is under repair. Using a series of access pits dug approximately every 500 feet, crews will use a mechanical device to scrape and clean the inside of the water mains, followed by the application of a concrete mortar lining to protect the pipes from future corrosion. Because the water main does not need to be replaced in its entirety, disruption to traffic will be minimized.
During construction residents, motorists and pedestrians can expect to see:
- Hoses connected to fire hydrants and above ground plastic piping
- Intermittent traffic lane and street parking closures
- Water released for required water quality-related flushing
- Construction equipment and materials
- Steel plate road covers for temporary street openings
- Some limited asphalt paving areas
It’s important for pedestrians and motorists to keep an eye on sidewalks, streets and local signage. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience you may experience.
Project details and a map are available at the Water Department Office located at 21 East Aurora Street. For questions regarding this project please contact the Bureau Engineering Office at 203-574-8251 ext. 7669.
To report a potential water quality issue or ask any customer service related question, please call our Customer Call Center at 203-574-8251. ... See MoreSee Less
