Public Water Supply Watersheds and Aquifer Protection Areas

Some have raised concerns about the proposed site being located near either the Hopeville Road Aquifer Protection Area (APA) or the Stone Hill Reservoir.

As shown in the figure below, both public water sources are located completely in different subregional watersheds.  In fact, the Hopeville Road APA is located 3.8 miles away from the proposed site and is located in the Quinebaug River Subregional Watershed.  The proposed Lee Road site is located in the Pachaug River Subregional Watershed.  Stone Hill Reservoir and it's watershed is located 1.5 miles to the north and is also located in a completely different subregional watershed (Mill Brook Subregional Watershed).  This is according to CT DEEP data.
