Connecticut Water held an informational meeting in Mansfield last night to discuss the diversion permit application being filed with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). The Town of Mansfield also participated in the meeting.
“Connecticut Water is committed to providing regular information to the public about the plan to extend water to serve the Town of Mansfield and the University of Connecticut,” said Eric Thornburg, President of Connecticut Water. “Last night we were able to provide details about the project and were available to answer questions from the public about the process. We will continue to provide periodic updates on our progress and seek feedback from the community as we secure the necessary local and state approvals and permits needed to bring water to the area.”
Connecticut Water will submit an application for a Diversion Permit to DEEP in early April which outlines the plan to supply the town and university with additional water once the pipeline is complete.
