Media Release: CT DOT Announcement re: warning signs and pavement markings marking curves on state roads


The West Cornwall Water Septic Study Group has been meeting for about a year and a half with a focus on West Cornwall’s economic vitality and the cleanliness of the Housatonic river.  The Group has recently taken delivery of a draft report entitled Waste Water Management Study of West Cornwall crafted by the Wengell, McDonnell and Costello (WMC) Consulting Engineers. The Study Group has reviewed and edited the initial draft and you can read the revised plan by clicking here

The Study Group is seeking input and questions from the entire Cornwall community and urges you to read the draft report and come to their next scheduled meeting on Tuesday, October 10th at 5pm at Town Hall.  It is expected that following this meeting, and likely further revisions to the draft report,  the BOS will set a Town Meeting date in November to vote on this issue.
