Water Source and Capacity
The existing water supply is obtained from watersheds that are between the Housatonic River and the Connecticut River and extend from close to Long Island Sound to about 20 miles inland.
The total Safe Yield (the yield which can be reasonably expected in 99 out of 100 years) of all active sources is 79.3 million gallons per day (“MGD”). The total Available Water for all Authority supplies, which is defined by the Connecticut Department of Public Health (“DPH”) as the amount of water that the Authority can dependably supply, taking into account limitations on Safe Yield, is 76.7 MGD. The Authority’s Available Water is approximately 15.8 MGD greater than the highest historical annual average daily draft in the Authority’s service area of 60.9 MGD in 1988. The water supply is currently obtained from four active surface water supply systems, which provide approximately 85% of available water, and six well fields.
