The UIL team explained the agreement that was put in place in 1999 between their company and Eversource’s gas division Yankee Gas. It provides for UIL to run and maintain an 8″ gas main to the Redding -Weston border, and provide 2200 mcf a day in capacity (the original terms provided 1,000 mcf, which was increased in 2008). This gas line provides service to the Meadow Ridge facilities, with approximately 260 mcf of gas currently used per day. The path of the pipe was documented by map and photos, running up Route 57 then along Highland Avenue and overland to the Meadow Ridge site.  We discussed with the team possible approaches to extend service gas service to Georgetown, and were advised to follow up with the Eversource contacts.

Susan related that the individual surveys on high speed internet use by Redding town residents were still being collected, and that she hoped to provide results at the next meeting.

Motion for Adjournment was made and approved at 2.56 pm.  Higgins, Polio
