Beginning this month, the Metropolitan District (MDC) and its contractors will perform limited tree removal at the West Hartford Water Treatment Facility, located off Farmington Avenue in West Hartford.

The trees being removed are those that are dead, in serious health decline due to insect infestations, damage caused by recent storms, or those whose root systems could be directly influencing the pipelines themselves. The work is necessary to protect the water supply infrastructure, and for recreations users.

During the project, certain areas will be closed to the public. Beginning May 4, 2015, certain sections of roadways will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED to the public. This will help to facilitate the work and ensure it’s done in a safe manner.
