Post-Storm Emergency Information from Wilton PD

List of resources available, sent from the Wilton Police Department.

The town will continue to distribute drinking water to residents on Kristine Lilly Way across from the tennis courts from 6:00 am until 9:00 pm for the next few days for those in need. If you are in need of drinking water please come to the site and follow directions in an orderly and patient manner.

The town continues to work closely with our CL&P representatives to address the major response as we begin to transition to power restoration. Today, CL&P notified the town that additional work crews will begin arriving to assist those already working in town. Crews will continue to work 16 hour days as they clear the remaining roadways of trees and downed power lines and restore power to residents.

To report downed power lines residents should call the CL&P Reporting Hot Line, 800-286-2000. You will receive a prerecorded message and then instructions on how to leave the appropriate information so that you will be placed on their repair list. 

Additionally, the Wilton YMCA, Wilton Library, Comstock Community Center, Trackside Teen Center and St. Matthews Episcopalian Church and Wilton Presbyterian Church, located at 36 New Canaan Road are all open to assist residents with power supply and shower facilities at the Y. 

To contact Wilton’s Hurricane Information Hot Line, you may call 203-663-2703 at anytime.

Editor's note: If you call CL&P and have your CL&P account number ready, you should be able to get an estimate of when the power will be turned on for your residence.

The CL&P response has been inadequate in Wilton. No major power resoration in the last couple of days. We pay premium electric rates in our state and receive poor service. Our personal power restoration is projected for Tuesday September 6th at 11:30PM by CL&P.

Agreed. Premium Prices. Premium Service. That simple.

Seems everyone who checks with CL&P on their individual home and when power will be restored is given the same estimate of Tuesday by 11:30 pm. So that's not helpful! Mary W
