Connecticut Towns Collaborate on River Project

The Saugatuck River is a 23.7-mile-long river in southwestern Connecticut.  The Saugatuck River Watershed Partnership is a collaboration between the eleven towns of Bethel, Danbury, Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Norwalk, Redding, Ridgefield, Weston, Westport and Wilton and The Nature Conservancy. The goal of the Partnership is to protect and enhance the health of the watershed by working collaboratively to link, maintain and restore habitats. In an effort to continue sustainability for the watershed, various programs and workshops are being promoted, along with the enhancement of common objectives.

These goals include promoting education and understanding of the watershed’s natural resources; protecting and restoring water quality in the watershed; protecting and enhancing stream flow; encouraging sound land use and management practices; controlling invasive species; restoring migratory fish passage; working to establish protective development guidelines; and facilitating communication and collaboration among individuals, governments and communities to protect the health of the Saugatuck River Watershed.

Coming up soon… attend a Water Quality Symposium on February 4th at the Redding Community Center. The Symposium will include current research findings on water quality and habitats in Saugatuck River, Westport Harbor and Long Island Sound.
