Housatonic River Basin Natural Resources Restoration Plan
The original Plan, adopted in 2009, provided $7 million to 27 projects, across three restoration categories:
- aquatic natural resources,
- riparian and floodplain natural resources,
- and recreational use of natural resources.
Since the actual cost of the aquatic natural resource projects was substantially less than the riparian and recreational use projects, the Trustee SubCouncil reserved a portion of the settlement to fund future projects in this category, through amendments to the plan. Remaining settlement funds have grown to more than $2 million in an interest-bearing fund.
