Connecticut has some of the nation’s toughest laws protecting the lands that drain to our drinking water reservoirs, and for good reason—healthy, intact forests are the first line of defense in cleaning rainfall, filtering out pollution, and keeping your drinking water pure and safe. But threats still exist.
A Tennessee-based power company wants to expand its fracked gas pipeline throughout the northeast. It passes through Connecticut, and one section crosses nearly six miles of watershed lands belonging to MDC—the lands that filter drinking water for tens of thousands of Hartford and central Connecticut residents. Allowing this construction would set a terrible precedent that could threaten drinking water lands all over the state. See our slides for a quick overview.
CFE/Save the Sound Board members Barbara David and Sara Bronin recently hosted a gathering at the Town and County Club in Hartford to build connections among concerned residents and environmental advocates opposing the pipeline route.
