In coordination with state and local officials, Aquarion has issued a mandatory irrigation ban in Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Stamford, and Westport as southwest Fairfield County hits its third drought trigger this fall. This will help to ensure an adequate water supply for everyday needs and give water supplies time to recover for the spring. With cooler temperatures, irrigation system use is unnecessary at this time.
Recent rainfall from Hurricane Delta remnants did little to replenish water supplies. Effective immediately, the ban includes automatic irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers. As cooler temperatures have arrived, irrigation system use has become unnecessary. Consequently, all Aquarion-issued, irrigation variances are revoked for the season with this ban. Hand-held watering, soaker hose, and drip irrigation continue to be permitted for new plantings.
Aquarion customers are also encouraged to use water more efficiently indoors with the following five tips:
