Investing in our water infrastructure helps maintain a health & safety community

As part of our budget for 2017, Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) will continue to make substantial investments in our water infrastructure to assure a healthy and safe supply for our community and region for many years to come. And while paying for these types of investments are not always popular or easily understood, that does not make them any less essential.


NPU opens 2nd compressed natural gas vehicle fueling station

On May 31, NPU formally opened its new $1.8 million compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle fueling station, a project funded in large part through a grant from the Federal Highway Administration. Congressman Joe Courtney, Senator Richard Blumenthal and a number of local officials were on hand to participate in a brief ribbon cutting ceremony at the station.

On May 24, NPU’s Board of Commissioners approved a $92.7 million budget for 2017 that increases our contribution to the City’s General Fund by 11% over the current year.

Under the City Charter, NPU returns 10% of our annual revenues from gas, water and electric services to the General Fund. Under this year’s budget, this contribution will be $8.6 million, an increase of $866,841.
