Murphy meets with Greenwich Land Trust to discuss ways to preserve the Sound

Tomorrow, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) will host a number of different events with community members and advocates around Connecticut to discuss ways to preserve the Long Island Sound. Although decades of overdevelopment, pollution, and releases of untreated sewage have severely hurt the water quality, the Sound is a proven economic driver, generating between $17 billion and $37 billion annually in tourism, fishing, shellfishing, and boating, not to mention the more than 1300 square miles of coast that serve as home to hundreds of diverse wildlife species.

Murphy will meet with members of the Greenwich Land Trust to listen and learn about the importance of preserving land along Connecticut’s coastline and how coastal conservation contributes to the health of the Long Island Sound Tuesday, June 30, at 3 p.m., at Sea Meadow Preserve, 100 Cedar Cliff Drive, Riverside.
