Canterbury, Connecticut

Canterbury was incorporated in 1703. 

The Canterbury Aqueduct Company was incorporated in 1843 by Andrew T. Judson, Isaac Knight, Job Angel and Joseph Palmer "for the purpose of conducting into the village of Canterbury, by means of subterraneous
pipes, water, for the use, convenience and safety of said corporators."  The company leased a spring to use as a water supply and built a system, but a dispute over ownership of the land on which the well was built was settled adversely to the company in 1853, and it is not known if they continued operating after that time.

There is no public water supply in Canterbury.
