The Connecticut Water Works Association has honored state Rep. Jonathan Steinberg of Westport as its “Legislator of the Year” for his leadership on issues affecting the quality and safety of Connecticut’s drinking water.

As co-chairman of the legislature’s Public Health Committee, Steinberg plays a key role in areas such as drought response, water security and water utility operations.

In presenting the award, Lori Vitagliano of the Regional Water Authority, said, “Recognizing how vital Connecticut’s water resources are to residents and businesses, Representative Steinberg has been a staunch advocate of efforts to develop a comprehensive state water plan that meets the state’s public health, safety, environmental and economic development needs.” 

“A balanced state water plan will position Connecticut as a leader in water resources protection and management,” said Maureen Westbrook of the Connecticut Water Company.
