Projects Supported by the

Quinnipiac River Fund


The Quinnipiac River Fund History
The Quinnipiac River Fund was established in 1990 by a court settlement of litigation between the Connecticut Fund for the Environment, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Upjohn Company, concerning wastewater discharges from the Upjohn Company's plant in North Haven. The Upjohn Company was required to pay $1.2 million dollars over a three year period. This money was used to establish a permanent fund. The net income from this fund is used to fund projects that will improve the quality of the Quinnipiac River Watershed and New Haven Harbor. The funds are made available through grants for research, education, restoration activities, and other relevant projects.
