Upon acquisition of the water company, the Town contracted with the
Connecticut Water Company to continue its management and services operations on
a month-to-month basis under the direction of an acting supervisor from the
Department of Public Works. During this interim period, the Town has issued a
Request for Proposals soliciting responses from qualified contractors to take
over the daily operation and management of the water system.
The mission of the Water Supply Division is to provide commercial and residential properties in the Hyannis service area with a safe, efficient and effective means of obtaining drinking water and providing fire protection.
The Water Supply infrastructure system consists of two water treatment facilities, 12 well pumping stations, a number of which have self-contained corrosion control systems, two storage standpipes and approximately 100 miles of distribution piping. The system has approximately 7,334 service connections and supplied approximately 969,000,000 gallons of water in 2004.
