CL&P Postpones Mansfield Public Open House

BERLIN, Connecticut, September 12, 2011 – Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) has postponed a public open house for residents to learn more about the Interstate Reliability Project that was originally scheduled for September 14, 2011. CL&P is currently working with the town to set a new date for the event in late October or early November. Local public officials and residents on or near the proposed route have been notified of the postponement.

The proposed Project is designed to improve the reliability of the transmission system serving eastern Connecticut. The project route begins in Lebanon and continues through Columbia, Coventry, Mansfield, Chaplin, Hampton, Brooklyn, Pomfret, Killingly, Putnam and Thompson, and then extends through National Grid's service areas in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

The Mansfield open house will be the second of two regional events to update residents on the Project and receive their meaningful feedback. The first open house was held in Danielson on August 23, 2011. At the open houses, members of the CL&P project team are on hand to provide information and answer residents’ questions about the proposed Project.

Once the new open house date has been set, CL&P will notify local public officials and residents through mailings, advertisements in local newspapers, and the Project's web page.
