If you have an announcement you would like to make at the conference, please let us know as soon as possible. We will add you to the agenda. We limit announcements to less than 5 minutes each. We will also have tables for those who would like to bring information to distribute to the group.

“There are a few more information meetings being planned around the state (Westport, Wallingford and an as-yet-to-be-determined Eastern CT location), and as those are firmed up, we’ll share the announcements with you.
We have also scheduled the formal public hearing to receive comment on the draft State Water Plan for the evening of Monday, October 30 here at DEEP, and announcements on that will be coming out in the near future.”
