Mansfield Area Water System Advisory Committee

The Water System Advisory Committee (WSAC) includes representatives of the Town of Mansfield, UConn, and nearby communities and other stakeholders to provide local input on water supply operations, conservation programs, and requests for expansion of water service. It provides an open and transparent process for the community and Connecticut Water to discuss the water supply for the area.

The WSAC was created under an agreement between Mansfield and Connecticut Water in 2014 that provides for Connecticut Water to become the water supplier to the off- campus customers currently served by the University of Connecticut in Mansfield and future public water customers in the community.  The Company also has an agreement with the University of Connecticut to construct the regional pipeline to the area and provide supplemental supplies to the University over the long term. 

The Committee will review and advise on any requests for water service in Mansfield that require a change in zoning, approval by a local land use commission, or involve a water system extension.  The Committee will also make recommendations about best management practices, including water conservation programs, and Connecticut Water will work with the WSAC to implement such programs.

There will be a Special Meeting of the WSAC on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 7 p.m. in the Mansfield Community Center. Special Meeting Agenda

Next regular meeting is scheduled for July 12, 2017. The location of the meeting has yet to be determined.
