Officials in both Norwich and Sprague are looking to have an emergency water main installed between the two towns, to ensure Sprague has a reliable backup system.  Norwich’s Board of Public Utilities Commissioners Tuesday night agree to have NPU General Manager John Bilda submit a letter of intent to the State Department of Public Health, with the hopes that state bonding funds for the project could be approved by next month.  NPU assistant General Manager Chris LaRose says an existing water main near Harry’s Market in Occum would be extended 10-thousand feet along Route 97 to Baltic. LaRose says the project is eligible for state grants to cover half the cost, and 30-percent of the cost of improvements to the city’s water system.  Low-interest state loans would cover the remaining expenditures. He says NPU can easily handle the increased water demand, even if the pipeline is eventually used on a more frequent  basis.  Construction could begin by next April.
