National Wetlands Awards
Congratulations to our friend and Westport Conservation Commission Director Alicia Mozian.
Alicia, the director of Westport’s Conservation Commission for more than 25 years, was acknowledged by The Environmental Law Institutes. She has been chosen as a recipient of the 2017 National Wetlands Award for her work and leadership of the Sasco Brook Pollution Abatement Committee for the Town of Westport.
Under her purview, the Committee has helped design and guide a number of initiatives, including public outreach, infrastructure improvements, dam repair planning, and amending Westport’s water-related policy.
In addition, Alicia has dedicated her life to education, policy reform, enforcement, and funding for water quality improvement by working with the local health district, universities, and nonprofits. Her efforts and that of her Committee have benefited the residents of Westport and Fairfield and all of us who enjoy Long Island Sound.
