2014_wmi_01Bristol County Water Authority completed the second phase of a project intended to bring more water flow to the Poppasquash area of our distribution system.This project included the installation of approximately 4500 feet of 10” high-density polyethylene (plastic) water main. The new main replaced an old 6” cast iron water main that was originally installed by Samuel Colt to provide water to his estate, which is now Colt State Park.

Prior to this project, the water mains serving this area provided safe water for consumption, but not fire protection. By strengthening the connection of the area to our main distribution system, and increasing the size of the water mains, the fire hydrants can now be used for firefighting, if needed.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! Our 2022 fire hydrant flushing program is underway!Click here for the schedule and more information
