FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A state task force studying how strong storms and rising sea levels affect Connecticut's shoreline will hold a third and final public hearing to get residents' input.
The Shoreline Preservation Task Force is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Monday at the Academic Center at the University of Connecticut's Avery Point campus in Groton.
Task force members say they want to hear from residents about how rising sea levels and bad storms are affecting their properties and their communities' shoreline and beaches. The panel is trying to come up with an action plan to deal with shoreline erosion and other problems.
The task force includes a bipartisan group of state lawmakers and environmental experts.
