Public Informational Meeting on the Draft State Water Plan

*Hosted by Connecticut State Representative Jonathan Steinberg*

What water issues concern you the most? Can Connecticut do a better job on water conservation?

The Draft Connecticut State Water Plan is currently available to the public for review and comment. The state’s Water Planning Council is developing the State Water Plan to help planners, regulators, and lawmakers make decisions to help frame future water management policies, laws and regulations in the state that ensure a fair and effective balancing the needs of all water users while protecting this precious and valuable resource.

The public comment period will be open until November 20, 2017 to ensure residents and interested parties have ample opportunity to review the draft plan and provide comments.  A copy of the draft plan and instructions on how to provide comments can be found at www.ct.gov/water.
