Stonington hires company to manage water service

STONINGTON — The Stonington Water Co. has hired environmental engineering firm Olver & Associates to manage the town’s water service.

Olver manages water service for other Hancock County towns, including Castine.

Town Manager Kathleen Billings-Pezaris said the two-year contract is for $71,000.

Olver was to be in Stonington last week to locate and mark valves and other infrastructure.

Stonington has an aging water infrastructure, which last year lost more water than it sold, according to a study Olver & Associates undertook at the request of the Board of Selectmen.
