Brookfield, Connecticut

Brookfield was first settled in 1710. 

The Iron Works Aqueduct Company was formed in 1837 to supply water from mountain springs to the Iron Works District.  The company was incorporated on May 19, 1958. 

The Brookfield Water Company was awarded exclusive service area rights to northern Brookfield in late 1997 by the Housatonic Water Utility Coordinating Committee with an objective to bring a potable water supply to an area in Brookfield known as Four Corners, where drinking water was contaminated from petroleum hydrocarbon spills.  The company was incorporated on February 2, 1998 and in 2003 was ordered by the Connecticut Departments of Public Utility Control and Public Health to take over the Iron Works Aqueduct Company.  

The Brookfield Water Company was acquired by Aquarion in 2011 and dissolved on December 29, 2011.

Water is provided by the Aquarion Water Company of Connecticut.
