State Representative Joe Gresko, (D)
121st Connecticut House District
Once again, Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro has stepped up for the town of Stratford.
Congresswoman DeLauro has secured more than $4 million to provide flood protection measures for the Stratford Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF). The federal funding we will receive will enable Stratford to upgrade storm water piping, as well as the storm water pump station in an effort to prevent open flows of untreated sewage that could flow due to flooding. This funding will begin Phase 1 of the Coastal Resiliency Plan.
Superstorm Sandy revealed how much our Water Treatment facility is at risk from flooding, potentially disrupting sewer lines service and devastating the Housatonic River. That cannot happen. I am grateful to Congresswoman DeLauro for recognizing how vital this is for our town and for securing these funds for us.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me at the Capitol at 800-842-8267 or email me at Joseph.Gresko@cga.ct.gov.
