This Includes - Lake Quassapaug which t» th« headquarters of ; Eight Mile Brook. ' •'.''' • ' ' •" • j The charter of the Bridgeport' Hydraulic ; Company states that if granted the right of eminent domain .they may take and'use such . lands,, springs, streams or ponds or such rights and interests therein as it may deem expedient or necessary for its corporate purposes" Last week, local newspapers car ried an advertisement paid for b the Bridgeport Hydraulic Compan : in which'they stated, that the over flow point of Lake Quassapau would be changed. What they "did .not say was that. this • would, b accomplished by pumping from th north end of the lake into a low swampy area which -, drains into Hop Brook.

Houses and farms in the .Middlebury area stand in the way of being flooded out entirely and their disposal systems passed on to Naugatuck. It is not a pretty picture, but if H. B. 892 is passed, it could happen, contingent entirely upon how much water the Bridgeport HyIraulie: Company might. deem it accessary or expedient to its corporate purposes,to dispose of. Those in Naugatuck who know what it is .to struggle with the Nau- ;atuck River on rampage will not welcome the entire overflow of the second largest lake in the state added to their, problems of flood The towns of Oxford, Southbury xerted a tremendous and well or- anizcd effort to defeat this bill o be sure, their stake is a big one ut if they are' successful Nauga- uck will be free from a threat of injustice perpetrated by the right •of .eminent "domain in the hands of a private corporation. • At this eleventh hour theie is one contribution that the residents of Naugatuck -';<:ah make .to :the common cause. That-is'to attend the hearing of the Public- 'Utilities Committee and help fill the Hall if the House' to the same degree >f overflowing that the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company would fill Hop Brook. If victory is ours, .a decisive one may keep this bill from being presented again in the future. • _ At 2 o'clock tomorrow, April 10th, at Hartford, your presence in protest can help. .HAROLD Wi BROWN.
