Tuesday August 9th the Killingly Town Council allowed us to make a presentation to them in regards to the proposed power plant.  We are very grateful that our Town Council and town management allowed us to do this.  It is truly great that a ‘grassroots’ organization comprised of local citizens was able to present concerns to our Town Council, our Town Manager, as well as those citizens in attendance at the meeting and all the viewers at home courtesy of the local Channel 22 coverage.

A representative from Connecticut Water (the local water utility company) preceded our presentation at the meeting during what became a question and answer session.  We were impressed with all of the  very pertinent and well thought out questions the members of the Town Council asked Connecticut Water’s representative.  We realized that they share some of the same concerns that we have relating to the proposed water usage of up to nearly 1/2 million gallons of water per day.

While we would like to thank Ms. Johnson and Mr. Anderson for giving our presentation we must acknowledge all of those behind the scenes. So, we also thank all of the individuals who have worked so hard with their research, planning, and community outreach who helped make this presentation possible.  Additionally, we would like to thank each and everyone who has supported and joined us in our quest to protect the health and environment of not just our community but of those surrounding communities for generations to come.

In conclusion, it has been great to see our town government (Town Council, Town Manager, Inland Wetlands & Watercourses, and Planning & Zoning) as well as Senator Mae Flexor,  Representatives Daniel Rovero and Christine Randall so intensively active in pursuing the complete truth of all the possible current and future impacts / benefits a project of this magnitude would have on our community. Once again we would like to express how thankful we are to have been given this opportunity by the Town Council and others to have our voices heard.  We are blessed to have such a great group of individuals representing Killingly.




  1. Given that the pollution will be shared by surrounding communities I wish we had all been notified of the meeting. This is a regional hazard

    1. Hi Mary, we would like to make you away of a few upcoming meetings. On October 19th at 7:00pm there is a public meeting at the Killingly High School in the auditorium. NTE will be presenting information about their proposed power plant and also answering questions that the public has about this proposed project. There is Connecticut Siting Council Public Comment Hearing Session on October 20th @ 6:30pm (sign up to speak starts at 6:00pm). This will also be held in the KHS auditorium. Everyone from Killingly and surrounding towns is encouraged to attend and participate at both meeting. Thank you for your support. NAPP


    1. Water is a huge concern for all of Windham County. Connecticut Water should be required to monitor the level of water in their wells and the affected aquifers.
