WESTON, Conn. -- The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is compiling results from a survey intended to take a look at the water quality for the 11 towns in the Saugatuck River area.

Plans are to hold discussion groups in each town - Danbury, Bethel, Newtown, Ridgefield, Redding, Easton, Weston, Westport, Wilton, Fairfield and Norwalk.

TNC wants to hear from residents and how the quality issues in the area and Long Island Sound affect them.

The online survey will close on July 13, with plans to set up focus groups on Wednesday and Thursday, July 15 and 16. All who participate in the focus group will be compensated.

Any questions can be directed to Holly Drinkuth, TNC's director of Outreach and Watershed Programs, by phone at (203)9568-6291 or by email at
