The public will get its third and final chance to weigh in on the development of Connecticut's first state water plan.

Much of the state continues to experience a severe drought with many cities and towns putting water restrictions in place.

Thursday, the Connecticut Water Planning Council said it's holding a public hearing in Southbury from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The council, along with consultants, is looking for water conservation solutions at the request of Gov. Dannel Malloy and lawmakers.

Its looking for input, questions and concerns about the state's water supply and uses.

The plan will ultimately recommend framework for managing Connecticut's water in the future and help balance the way water meets needs as new climate trends emerge.

It will also address quality and quantity of water for drinking, ecology, recreation, industry, agriculture, energy and wastewater.

Two other meetings were held this week in Norwich and New Britain.

Thursday's hearing is set for the Southbury Town Hall on Main Street South.
