HARTFORD, Conn. – Compromise is never easy, but the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is hoping municipalities and environmentalists will find their new storm water permit regulations better than the first.

Environmentalists argued that keeping pollutants out of Connecticut’s waterways was responsible and not an unfunded mandate.

    Does anyone know the URL to access a truly enlarged version of the DEEP impaired water bodies map? I tried enlarging it but it gets blurry and I can’t read the labels in the region affecting Norwalk.
    I’d be interested to see whether First Taxing District water sources are in better condition than others in our area.
