Community Input

North Branch Park River Watershed Management Plan project teamwork officially concluded on July 31, 2010. The approved final document resides with the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, along with other watershed management plans and documents on the Ct DEP website.

Watershed management plans are “living” documents that will evolve along with changes in the watershed – and knowledge gained through plan implementation.Contact project team members, or Ct Department of Environmental Protection if you are interested in the plan implementation process.
