The Connecticut State Water Plan Final Draft is currently available to the public for review and comment for a 120 - day period. Public Act 14-163, “An Act Concerning the Responsibilities of the Water Planning Council,” directed the state’s Water Planning Council (WPC) to develop a state water plan, intended to help planners, regulators, and lawmakers make decisions about managing Connecticut’s water in a manner that is consistent throughout the state. Over a 1- year planning timeframe, the WPC, with input from various stakeholders, subcommittee members and public participants, worked to develop the Connecticut State Water Plan, which represents the first time that Connecticut has had so much scientific information about water consolidated in a single document. While the Plan in and of itself is not the solution to Connecticut’s water issues, it is a collection of scientific information, policy recommendations, and forward-looking steps that should help frame future water management laws, regulations, and resolution of specific local issues. Please visit to view and download the draft Plan. Please submit your comments by Friday, November 20, 2017.
