A proposal backed by local lawmakers which aims to improve water services to residents of the Tylerville section of Haddam has passed in the Connecticut General Assembly and awaits the governor’s signature.
 
The proposal, co-sponsored by Rep. Phil Miller and Sen. Art Linares, would allow for an upgrade on the minimum size water main in Tylerville in order to carry fire flow and address public water supply needs.
The upgrade would come at no added cost to taxpayers. 
Underground pollution has fouled wells in Tylerville, and a number of residents have used bottled water as they await a permanent solution to the problem.  “I have been working very hard to get better water for Tylerville for a long time," Rep. Phil Miller said. “The goal is to help the people of Tylerville to receive clean drinking water and this represents a long-term solution.”

We all have a mutual goal for Tylerville, and that’s to get a safe and reliable water system,” Sen. Art Linares said.  “This measure has the support of Democrats and Republicans in the legislature, and we hope to see it become law soon.”

Rep. Miller represents Chester, Deep River, Essex, and Haddam. 
Sen. Linares represents Chester, Clinton, Colchester, Deep River, East Haddam, East Hampton, Essex, Haddam, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland, and Westbrook.
