An estimated 100 people attended a public hearing Tuesday night in Farmington on a proposal by the MDC to supply water from the Farmington River watershed for the University of Connecticut in Storrs and the town of Mansfield. Over 40 residents and environmental activists commented on a proposal to build a 20-mile pipeline that could deliver up to 1.93 million gallons of water a day from the Farmington River basin.
