Great news! The
Recent major article on water quality: http://keepthewoods.org/articles/article038.html
See new complied aquifer map at www.keepthewoods.org/water.php. It outlines regions of greatest sensitivity, the DEP aquifer protection zone, and the primary and secondary zones. Click on the map for even more information.
Bottom line: This purchase will secure the primary recharge and the most sensitive land for the Stratton Brook Aquifer. Land use impacts water quality directly. Dozens of public wells in CT are tainted or contaminated, and some have been forced to close.
KTW as a group does not endorse any political candidates. However we are thrilled to announce that both candidates for State Representative are supportive of this preservation effort. Rob Heagney and Linda Schofield understand that this is a bipartisan issue, and everyone wants this to happen.
If you have not been out for a hike, this is a beautiful season. Don’t miss it.
Keep the Woods!
