  • Hearing Slated on Aquarion Water Rate Hike Proposal

    State public utility regulators have scheduled a public hearing for this week on the Aquarion Water Company’s proposal to increase its water rates across the next three years, which if approved, would result in an overall 22.7 percent water rate hike.

    Aquarion owns the public water supply which serves central Newtown, Sandy Hook Center, and the Mt Pleasant Road, Main Street, and South Main Street areas. The water supply system formerly was owned by United Water.
