The Tilcon Quarry Expansion: What’s at Stake

  • Southington Public Library 255 Main Street Southington, CT, 06489 United States (map)

Presentation by: John Sokolowski

Sponsored by: Protect Our Watersheds Connecticut

What:
The public is invited to come see, hear, and learn about New Britain’s Shuttle Meadow
Reservoir watershed and what is at stake in Tilcon-CT’s proposal to gain an exception to
state laws protecting watershed land in order to expand its Plainville quarry southward into
132 acres of New Britain-owned watershed. This mining proposal threatens the streams and
aquifers supplying drinking water wells, the Shuttle Meadow Reservoir, and Crescent Lake.

See how the watershed forest:
• increases safe drinking water supply
• provides a healthy habitat for living things
• purifies air, land, and water in our region
