Public comment being accepted on State Water Plan

The state Department of Public Health is accepting public comment through Monday on the State Water Plan.  A presentation was made recently to the Western Connecticut Council of Governments about the State Water Plan. The Public Health’s Drinking Water Section was presented to the regional planning agency for cities and towns from Sherman down to Stamford.

 

The draft report found that while Connecticut leads the nation in protections of drinking water quality, the state lags in its water conservation ethic. It says the key to preserving the integrity of that quality is to have e an increased awareness among consumers about its value and vulnerability.  

 

The draft report found that climate change is likely to have a significant effect on potential flooding in Connecticut and could also result in drier summers in the next 25 years.
