When Will Blumenthal and the DEP Finish the Sewage Spill Investigation?

How long does it take to investigate a 12-million-gallon sewage spill?

It’s been 18 days since 12 million gallons of raw sewage from a New Haven treatment plant spilled into Long Island Sound. Fourteen days ago, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal issued a written statement to Sphere saying the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection was investigating, and that when the investigation was completed, the AG and the DEP will determine what legal action against New Haven is appropriate.

Questions to be answered:

Should New Haven should be fined for violating its state permit to discharge pollutants?

Is New Haven responsible for damages to natural resources such as shellfish beds?

How long does it take to figure these things out?
