“We believe that the challenges of reaching 2050 goals — and interim targets along the way — will require fresh thinking, ambitious action, and a new level of leadership…Connecticut’s next-generation climate change response must be integrated and must transcend government’s ordinary role by engaging citizens, business and institutions as full partners.”

Water is part of the public trust. Support Connecticut's State Water Plan.

Contact your legislators today and tell them that you support the State Water Plan moving forward as an executive order, and you want them to vote to pass it in the 2019 legislative session.

Students and young people all over the world are standing up to address many significant problems facing our society—and making a big difference!  We’re doing the same by launching a club at our school called “Choate for Clean Water.” As juniors in high-school, we became concerned about clean drinking water through our passion of politics and environmental studies. Our club’s focus is to raise awareness and educate within our community about the importance of clean water and how policies at the state and federal level impact our water.

It takes a lot to build momentum and political will against big utilities and corporate interests but that’s what happened this legislative session thanks to the power of Clean Water Action. Our coordinated campaign, together with other allies, helped pass policies for bold climate action and expanded renewable energy.
