Groton Utilities is active in our community in many ways. We conduct educational sessions in our public schools, participate in community activities like City Day, offer tours at our Water Treatment Plant, celebrate Public Power Week and Earth Day, and are active in the Groton Division of the Association of Chambers of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut of Southeastern Connecticut.
Groton Utilities believes that today’s children are tomorrow’s customers. Education is the key to making our children better citizens and, in our case, better, wiser customers. Our Water Division personnel conduct classes on water quality throughout the year.
Due to heightened security, we limit tours and activity within our watershed. We do however, continue to provide tours of our Water Treatment Facility. Tours can be arranged by calling 860.446.4000.
Groton Utilities supports local schools with educational opportunities:
- Facility Tours
- Job Shadowing
- In-school Programs
- Collaborative Programs
- Resource sharing
GU is moving forward with plans for a collaborative program with Ella Grasso Tech. Students will convert an old stone building within our watershed to a science laboratory shared by the community and co-sponsored by local industry and organziations.
