Presented By Amanda Ryan, UConn CLEAR, David Dickson, UConn CLEAR, Joe Lanzafame, City of New London and Randy Collins, CT Conference of Municipalities (CCM)
Stormwater utilities are used across the country as a way for municipalities to cover the costs of installing and maintaining their stormwater infrastructure. The concept has been slow to catch on in Connecticut – the state’s one and only utility was established in the City of New London just last year. Joe Lanzafame from New London will share how their utility came to be, how it’s administered, and how it’s going so far. We’ll also hear an update from Randy Collins from the CT Conference of Municipalities (CCM) on the status of legislation to provide all CT municipalities with clear authority to establish their own stormwater utility.
