Senator Anwar Releases Statement Regarding Metropolitan District

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) issued the following statement in advance of a vote Monday night by the Metropolitan District to grant Niagara bottling company of Bloomfield a potential 50 percent discount on water resources. That, combined with a recent rate hike of 14 percent, has led legislators to have issues with MDC leadership. A bill that would revise state statutes assisting with the founding of the MDC and re-examining its structure is currently being developed in the state legislature's Planning and Development Committee.

"My concern is that the price of water for a larger company would be less than what Connecticut customers would pay," Sen. Anwar said. "This is unfair and unacceptable. I also want to make sure there is protection in case of drought. While this appears unlikely, it's worthwhile to make sure that if it happens, the people of Connecticut will be first in line for water, not an out-of-state company."
