DEEP: Current Projects

Current Projects

Tylerville Center, Haddam

The Tylerville section of Haddam relies upon groundwater as the sole drinking water supply to residences and commercial properties. Groundwater in Tylerville has been impacted by historic releases of chlorinated solvents, 1,4-dioxane (a solvent stabilizer), and methyl-tert butyl ether (MTBE). No public water utility currently exist for the impacted area. Therefore, parcels with water supply wells impacted with contaminants above applicable state and federal criteria currently utilize individual filtration systems and/or receive bottled water for consumptive use.

DEEP has completed a draft water supply engineering study on behalf of the Town of Haddam evaluating alternatives to provide a reliable, long-term source of potable water to Tylerville, where groundwater contamination has polluted residential drinking water wells and threatened many others. The preferred alternative is extension of the water main from Chester to Haddam.

A combined Public Hearing on the draft engineering study pursuant to RCSA Section 22a-471-1(f)(2)(B) and Scoping Meeting pursuant to the Connecticut Environmental Policy Act was held on June 21, 2017. 

The water supply engineering report incorporating public comments is expected to be finalized in Fall 2017. 

Tylerville Center State Superfund Site contains a background summary of the project.
