Please join us on Wednesday, March 29th (6:30 pm) in person at Norwalk Library for a talk by Bill Lucey, the Long Island Soundkeeper and a Save the Sound representative as he discusses storm water pollution and solutions we can use to mitigate its harms to our rivers and Norwalk Harbor. Stormwater runoff is the #1 threat to water quality in Connecticut, and with increasing storm frequency and intensity, the challenges and costs of managing stormwater continue to grow.
Coastal cities like Norwalk are particularly vulnerable. Being proactive in addressing these impending threats will help to positively manage potentially skyrocketing costs and increase resilience to pollution and flooding.

This series is sponsored by the Norwalk Library, Rowayton Library, Norwalk Garden Club, Rowayton Gardeners, Norwalk Land Trust, Norwalk River Watershed Association, and the Norwalk Tree Alliance.
Bill Lucey, a Connecticut native and our Soundkeeper, has been fighting for fish and clean water for decades. In addition to monitoring the Sound from his boat most days, he is a registered lobbyist who speaks for the Sound in Hartford. In 2021, he successfully fought for a climate change and adaptation bill featuring stormwater authority enabling legislation. Bill will provide insight on how Stormwater Utilities could spread out the long-term costs of mitigating pollution in the Norwalk River Watershed.
