Referendum Question on the Ballot for MDC's Clean Water Project

The following question regarding the Metropolitan District Commission's (MDC) Clean Water Project will appear on the November 6, 2012, ballot for the MDC member towns of Bloomfield, East Hartford, Hartford, Newington, Rocky Hill, West Hartford, Wethersfield and Windsor. The following explanatory text has been prepared pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes Section 9-369b.

The Question reads as follows:

Shall the appropriation of an additional $800,000,000, to be financed, in part, by the issuance of bonds and Clean Water Fund grants and loans, for Phase II of the Metropolitan District's combined sewer overflow, sanitary sewer overflow and nitrogen removal programs to decrease levels of pollution in Metropolitan District member towns, the Connecticut River and its tributaries, and Long Island Sound to comply with a consent decree of the United States District Court of the District of Connecticut and a consent order of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, be approved?

The purpose of the question is to appropriate funds toward the Clean Water Project, which will address approximately 1 billion gallons of combined wastewater and storm water currently released each year to area waterways. This wastewater is discharged by 38 combined sewer overflow (CSO) and eight sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) locations, at which diluted sewage is discharged into the Connecticut River and its tributaries. To learn more, go to http://www.themdc.com/pr10132012.pdf.
