The city's anti-flooding effort has been more or less on hold while waiting for approval for federal funding of what's needed to help control the water during heavy rains.
U.S. Rep. John Larson, an East Hartford Democrat whose 1st District includes Bristol, said today that he's "working on it."
Larson said that the money should be included in the next appropriations bill.
"We hope that will be approved," said Larson. "I don't see any reason why it won't."
Larson said it's his job to round up the cash sought by Bristol and other towns in his district.
The study, if funded, would be done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
