State Representative Joe Gresko was recognized at the Connecticut Water Works Association’s (CWWA) Annual Fall Conference as Legislator of the Year for his continued advocacy for issues affecting Connecticut’s drinking water.

“It’s an honor being recognized by CWWA for an issue critical to Connecticut residents’ health,” said Rep. Gresko. “Clean and safe water is essential – for us to drink and for our ecosystem to thrive. As Co-Chair of the Environment Committee, I’m particularly proud of removing the sales and use tax from Stratford customers’ water bills.”

Specifically, CWWA celebrated Rep. Gresko for his work protecting water quality by mitigating road salt contamination, protecting open space and watershed lands and supporting efforts to address invasive species. And, for his leadership role in restoring the sales tax exemption for goods and services purchased by public water suppliers.
