"WHAT do urban parks and illegal dumping have to do with environmental justice? Plenty, according to those involved with the environmental equity program of the State Department of Environmental Protection, which announced its policy in 1993: ''No segment of the population should bear a disproportionate share of the risks or consequences of environmental pollution or be denied access to environmental benefits, such as parks and forests, fishing and outdoor recreation.'' To address the issues, the department proposed several ways to promote environmental health as well as to stimulate economic development in urban areas. To carry out the program, the department's air, waste and water management bureaus prepared plans. The department also created regional environmental justice community advisory boards in Hartford and New Haven that meet monthly and provide environmental activists, neighborhood residents and representatives of municipal departments an opportunity to hash out problems and discuss solutions."
