NORWALK, Conn. -- State Sen. Bob Duff, a Democrat who represents both Norwalk and Darien, was named Legislator of the Year by the Connecticut Water Works Association.
CWWA recognized Duff for his leadership role in winning passage of comprehensive legislation that creates strong incentives for water companies and customers to conserve water, and addresses operational issues facing water companies, such as debt collection and burdensome reporting requirements.
The bill also supports investment in water infrastructure to assist water companies in replacing aging pipes, improving distribution systems and adopting energy efficiency measures to provide customers with a safe supply of quality water.
“Fresh water is a rare and precious resource, and I am proud to support policies which promote water conservation," Duff said in a statement. "By providing water companies and authorities with incentives to conserve, and by promoting more efficient infrastructure, we can use less water and help consumers to save on their monthly bills. It is an honor to be recognized by the Connecticut Water Works Association.”
