Housatonic Water Works Company

We provide water to the village of Housatonic and surrounding neighborhoods. Our water is sourced from Long Pond Reservoir and treated to the highest standard

Since 1897

Several small water companies were founded in Housatonic during the latter half of the 1800s. The Housatonic Water Company was incorporated in 1884, a precursor to Housatonic Water Works. During this time, the village of Housatonic was growing by leaps and bounds as local paper and textiles mills expanded. A reliable water supply for drinking and fire protection was needed. The crystal clear water of Long Pond was chosen as the company’s water source.
