Hartford Clean Water Act Settlement

(Hartford, Conn. - May 11, 2006) - A major settlement involving federal and state regulators and the Hartford-based Metropolitan District (MDC) will significantly reduce illegal discharges of raw sewage into the environment throughout the Hartford, Conn. area from the MDC's wastewater collection system. Reducing discharges of untreated sewage to local rivers and streams will enhance the fishing and contact recreation opportunities in the Connecticut River for area inhabitants, many of whom are historically disadvantaged.
