Three Tolland Water Systems Under Boil Advisory

The Department of Public Health recommends that residents on these systems boil their drinking and cooking water.

The Connecticut Department of Public Health has issued boil advisories for the following Tolland water systems:


According to the DPH website, residents should bring their water to a rolling boil for one minute and ensure that there are no floating pieces in the water before boiling it.

It is recommended that water is boiled that will be used for drinking, cooking, washing fruits or vegetables or for brushing your teeth.

Jayme-- Baxter Farms Community Water Association is comprised of 41 homeowners on Meadowood Rd, Old Farms Rd, and Baxter Rd (4 homes). Each homeowner owns 1/41 of the association. Three wells serve the 41 homes. The deed to each home states that the buyer of the house becomes a member of the association and are subject to its rules and bylaws. It is one of only a few community water associations that are still operating today, at least in this part of Connecticut. I am a past president of the association and am currently on its governing board. Rep Hurlburt's family lived in a house within the association when I first moved into the neighborhood.

Steve how do we know when the advisory is over. We were not contacted by the association and thought they had to let us know when they started an advisory.

Hi, Matt. It looks like all the Tolland systems have been removed from the advisory list, according to the DPH website. http://www.ct.gov/dph/cwp/view.asp?a=3115&q=513298
