The Town of Old Lyme has set up three stations across the town with free access to water and electricity.
“Most of Old Lyme is on well water and without electricity they don’t have water," explained Resident State Tropper Matthew Weber.
The stations are at the Old Lyme Police Department, the senior center and the fire station. They will be open from noon to 6 p.m. as needed.
Public works crews were on the move in Old Lyme today addressing widespread damage across the town. The majority of secondary roads are impassable, according to Weber. Crews told NBC Connecticut that the work would definitely not be completed before the end of the day Wednesday.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Eversource was reporting that more than 99% of the town, 5,000 plus customers, were without power. It could be days before full power is restored.
Residents looking to get rid of storm debris can use the Old Lyme Transfer station on Four Mile River Road from now until August 15 at no cost, according to the town.
