The draft of the Connecticut State Water Plan has been available to the public for review and comment since late July. The state’s Water Planning Council is developing the plan to help provide planners, regulators and lawmakers with guidelines to make decisions on future water management policies, laws and regulations.
The council members say the input of citizens “is crucial to the development and implementation of the plan to ensure it is fair and effective at balancing the needs of all water users while protecting a valuable resource,” according to the WPC’s page at ct.gov.
A public information meeting will take place on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Earthplace, the Nature Discovery Center, 10 Woodside Lane, Westport. It will be hosted by State Rep. Jonathan Steinberg, (D-136th).
The public comment period will be open until Nov. 20. A copy of the draft plan and instructions on how to provide comments can be found at ct.gov/water.
