CT to Tackle Housatonic Flooding Issues
April 18, 2012
New Haven Register: A brainstorming session Monday (April 9) on Housatonic River flooding with U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and representatives of 8 municipalities brought new ideas for the future.
Municipal leaders from old Milford to New Milford and beyond presented their concerns on what Blumenthal defined as a regional problem.
Even those communities not directly on the river are affected by flooding, when power is lost or roads are closed, one official said.
