Money for Clean Water

Speak up in favor of getting Connecticut back into the cleanup of Long Island Sound. The state Assembly’s Environment Committee is holding three public hearings over the next week or so to hear what people think of a number of bills, including one that would increase the amount of money in the Clean Water Fund from $20 million to $70 million. If it doesn’t pass, Connecticut will have to cut back its plans to reduce the amount of nitrogen flowing into the Sound from local sewage treatment plants.

The hearings are March 10 at the Sound School in New Haven, March 13 at Norwich City Hall and March 15 at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield. All begin at 7 p.m. As usual, Leah Schmalz at Save the Sound has details: (203) 787-0646, Ext. 121
