In the 2021 legislative session, the Connecticut General Assembly passed a law authorizing all CT towns to set up a stormwater utility/fee. Stormwater utilities are often touted as an equitable way to help pay for increasing municipal stormwater management costs while also helping your community guard against a changing climate. Should your community consider it? What are the benefits? What are the risks? How does a utility work? What has been the experience of other New England communities? This webinar addressed those questions and engaged participants in discussing their concerns and questions about stormwater utilities.
