This Thursday: Public Meeting on Tilcon Expansion Proposal

Members of the "Protect our Watersheds Connecticut (POWCT)" group will hold a public meeting to discuss the proposed Tilcon quarry expansion plan this Thursday, September 22nd at 7PM in New Britain Public Library. Tilcon is planning to expand its quarry from Plainville, CT into a New Britain-owned watershed forest. Meeting organizers have requested that anyone interested in attending RSVP to ensure that they will have a seat. RSVPs can be sent by posting on the "Protect Our Watersheds CT" Facebook group or sending an email through the group's website: www.protectourwatershedsct.org

The meeting will include a review of the expansion that Tilcon and the City of New Britain are considering, and the evaluative and procedural responses underway in compliance with Public Act 16-61: An Act Concerning An Environmental Study On A Change In Use Of New Britain Water Company Land, which was passed at the request of Mayor Erin Stewart of New Britain.

Attendees to the 9/22/16 meeting will see and hear a review of the issue. A question and answer session will follow the presentation. The meeting is structured to answer these questions:

  1. What are Tilcon and City Leaders proposing?
  2. How will this plan affect our watershed and our drinking water?
  3. Who is monitoring this proposal?
  4. How can I voice my concerns about this issue?
