Water & Compliance

UConn owns and maintains a water supply and distribution system that provides potable water and fire protection to on-campus buildings, serving  approximately 28,000 undergraduate and graduate students as well as faculty and staff members throughout the year.  UConn contracts with the Connecticut Water Company (CWC) to operate the system. CWC is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the water system and to maintain proper water quality to meet state and federal standards.  The system includes two well fields (Willimantic Wellfield and Fenton Wellfield), pump stations, storage tanks/facilities,  24-miles of distribution mains and 6-miles of transmission mains.

To plan for the anticipated long-term water supply needs of UConn and nearby area of Mansfield, the University and CWC partnered to install an interconnection.  The interconnection has been complete since 2016 and actively flows quality drinking water from the CWC system.
