Harold Blinderman and Eric Jedrychowski wrote an article "New Regulations Increase Oversight of Conn. Dams," for The Connecticut Law Tribune. The article is about how Connecticut's dam owners face additional inspection and reporting obligations under revised dam safety regulations implemented by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) in February. While the Connecticut legislature has previously taken steps to require inspections of many dams classified as "high or significant hazard" in Connecticut, DEEP’s revised regulations impose new requirements on most owners and strengthen and clarify various existing regulatory provisions. Implementation of the new regulatory provisions marks the final step in a multiyear process to transfer responsibility for monitoring and inspecting Connecticut's dams from DEEP to dam owners.
