In order to continue to upgrade stormwater infrastructure, three grant applications were submitted to the Connecticut Department of Housing. Westport was awarded $650,000 to complete two of the projects. One hundred percent of the grants are federally funded and no town contribution is required. Of the total awarded, $250,000 is earmarked for a study of Dead Man’s Brook. The remaining $400,000 is to be used to to conduct a master drainage plan study, which has not been done since 1970s. A third application, to perform a flood audit for Downtown, is still outstanding.
