Let them know you care for Connecticut's water security:
water is our most important natural resource
Ask Your Legislators to Support Amending HB 7220 "An Act Concerning the Department of Public Health's Recommendations Regarding Safe Drinking Water". CALL if you can; speak to his/her aide; email is second best:
- Require a renewable approval from the Dept. of Public Health for water bottlers using municipal water. Ensure we have enough water for the bottler and the needs of ALL the water system users.
- Require water bottlers to adhere to all emergency contingency procedures for drought and allow the Commissioner of Public Health to issue additional restrictions if deemed necessary.
- Publish applications for water bottling on the Dept. of Public Health website so the public knows how their drinking water is being allocated.
- Ask the Inter-agency Drought Task-force to develop a coordinated framework for assessing drought conditions and developing guidelines for water use during drought.
