Hartford Courant: Trumbull Park [in Plainville, Connecticut] is getting especially porous pavement so polluted runoff can soak into the earth to be filtered before it reaches the Quinnipiac River.

The project, part of an environmental group’s statewide Save The Sound program, will be done next month in the town park, which borders the Quinnipiac River. The work will be done through the Connecticut Fund For The Environment, which has many similar projects in Connecticut and New York to clean runoff before it flows in streams and rivers that feed into Long Island Sound.
