Conservation and Development of Land and Water Resources (2001-2002)

In accordance with national, state, and local positions which support planning for conservation and development of land and water resources, the League supports the following measures:

  • Creation of a local ordinance requiring regular septic system pump-out and repair.
  • Creation of a manure management for horses.
  • Definition and protection of aquifers for the future.
  • Development of a plan by the appropriate local and state agencies, in cooperation with Bridgeport Hydraulic Company, which calls for release of unprocessed water from Bridgeport Hydraulic Company's dams in order to achieve a sufficient flow of water in Mill River seasonally necessary to support the basic river ecosystem.
