Aquarion buys another water system

Bridgeport-based Aquarion Water Company announced Tuesday the purchase of Indian Fields Homeowners Association’s water system in Brookfield, Connecticut.  This independent system serves approximately 160 Brookfield residents.

The company did not disclose the value of the deal.

“We are pleased to continue our expansion in the town of Brookfield, and we look forward to providing these new customers with the same safe and reliable water service,” said Charles V. Firlotte, Aquarion President and CEO.  “This continues our goal of reducing the number of small water systems throughout the state.”

In 2011 and 2012, Aquarion purchased and integrated 56 Connecticut water systems.

“We are pleased to see Aquarion continuing to acquire small water companies and consolidating them into Aquarion’s system. Aquarion has the financial strength and excellent customer service that will benefit its customers in Brookfield,” Brookfield First Selectman Bill Davidson said.
