Connecticut became a state in 1788.
Connecticut Corporations, December 1790-May 1820 ; two volumes and index : index Collection includes petitions and charters for early aqueduct and water companies.
Connecticut Water Works Association
The State of Connecticut in 1837 published a compilation of Resolves and Private Laws of the State of Connecticut from the year 1789 to the year 1836, which states on page 53, "Newtownship Aqueduct in New Haven, incorporated May 1809, but no action under the charter." A review of the laws passed during the May 1809 session does not include a "Newtownship Aqueduct," but does include a "New Township Academy" in New Haven, which suggests that the 1837 compiler read "academy" as "aqueduct."
