New London water main break update


The City of New London has declared a state of emergency following a major water main break on Thursday morning. The break is expected to severely impact some New London and Waterford residents over the next 24 to 48 hours.

We are in close contact with New London officials, who believe the water main break will not impact the College.

In order to help city conservation efforts, the College asks everyone on campus to conserve water as much as possible.

All campus activities are scheduled to go on as planned, with conservation efforts in mind. This page will be updated as new information about the situation becomes available.
