Town of Fairfield Dept. of Public Works Info

Town Crews continue to work on clearing Town roads to make them passable to two lanes of traffic. All to the trees without wires were cleared very quickly. As you are aware, there are still an number of locations where downed trees with wires are still completely blocking town roads. Without making excuses, Public Works crews cannot work on these independently, and require a UI line crew (or their subcontractor) to perform this work. However, based on the current level of UI Line Safe Crews provided, I would expect our roads to be substantially clear by some time on Sat 11/3/12.

As far as water levels in the beach area, the large scale pumping of water back into the Sound is having positive effects. The extent of the water line is constantly changing, but the fact that it has receded to the south of Reef Road and One Rod Highway is an indication of the success.
