PA 21-115 Climate Change Adaptation Act

On July 6, 2021, Governor Ned Lamont signed An Act Concerning Climate Change Adaptation, Public Act 21-115, into law. This law implements multiple recommendations outlined in the Phase 1 Near-Term Actions Report of the Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3) and was originally introduced by the Governor as House Bill 6441. The Act allows Connecticut municipalities to create a stormwater authority to address water quality and flooding, adds climate resilience and flood prevention to the purview of municipal flood and erosion control boards (FECBs), and expands the scope of the Connecticut Green Bank to invest more broadly in environmental infrastructure, including climate resilience and adaptation projects.

 

DEEP Coastal Property Owner’s Guide

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Land and Water Resources Division has created a new Coastal Property Owner’s Guide.  It can be found on the DEEP website.

The goal of the Coastal Property Owner’s Guide is to help familiarize current and potential property owners, real estate agents, attorneys, builders, and anyone involved in selling or buying coastal properties, with coastal structures and regulations.

DEEP has also prepared a ADA Coastal Property Owners Infographic and Coastal Property Owner Tri-fold Brochure for public consumption of this topic.
