DEEP: Diesel Plan

Diesel Mitigation Plan

On June 24, 2005 Governor Rell signed Special Act 05-07 requiring DEP to develop a diesel mitigation plan for submission to the General Assembly by January 15, 2006.  The initial stakeholder forum took place at DEP Headquarters on Tuesday, July 19th, 2005. The overview culminated in the unveiling of four sub-committees, transit, school bus, construction, and onroad fleets, that served as centers to develop Connecticut's Clean Diesel Plan
