Trout Unlimited, Advocacy Groups Weigh In on MDC Water Diversion Proposal

The deadline for public comment on the MDC proposal is Jan. 31.

As the public comment period for a controversial water diversion proposal draws near, local environmental advocacy groups are weighing in on the conversation.

In effort to supplement a taxed local water supply, the University of Connecticut and the Town of Mansfield are considering three options to bring more water to their communities. One option, as proposed by the Metropolitan District Commission, would divert approximately 2 million gallons of water from the Farmington River basin.
