The LIS trawl survey is a semiannual fishery-independent survey operated by the CTDEP. The survey encompasses an area from longitude 72[degrees] 03' (New London, CT) to longitude 73[degrees] 39' (Greenwich, CT), and includes both Connecticut and New York state waters from 5 to 46 m in depth over mud, sand, and transitional (mud/sand) substrate types.
Target tow duration was 30 min at 3.5 knots to cover a mean distance of 3241 m at each site (CTDEP 2013).

"We believe that the court made a fair and well-reasoned decision that clears the way for the CTDEP
and Islander East to work together to address the few remaining issues that need to be addressed prior to construction," said Bill Yardley, vice president, Duke Energy Gas Transmission, a partner with KeySpan in Islander East.
The standard CTDEP
landfill design limits slopes to 3H:1V because of the added weight created by a geomembrane, a drainage layer, and two ft of cover soil being placed on top of the waste material.

In late September, the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection (CTDEP
) collected water samples for analysis and contracted with the University of Connecticut to test the samples for a range of materials including pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, semivolatile organic compounds, volatile organic compounds, heavy metals and cyanide.

The chronic, widespread presence of relatively thin aRPD depths and highly anoxic sediment in western LIS throughout the months of May, September and December of 2002 is attributed to a well-documented combination of factors, including nutrient over-enrichment (eutrophication), resultant high inputs of labile organic matter to bottom waters and sediments and seasonal thermal stratification of the water column leading to near-bottom hypoxia (Parker & O'Reilly 1991, Welsh & Eller 1991, CTDEP
