The federal government is making what officials are calling a historic investment in the Long Island Sound.
The EPA says the agency's Long Island Sound program will receive $106 million over the next five years. The funding will come from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and will improve the Sound's environmental health.
"This money is going to be invested and make an extraordinary difference in our lives. Long Island Sound, look that's our treasure, that's our Mona Lisa. That is one of the greatest resources we have," said Gov. Ned Lamont.
The funding will also restore and protect habitats critical to water quality and recreational activities.
