Proposed Streamflow Classifications for Western CT published.
Information Sessions July 24
Comments due September 21
Stream flow protection in Connecticut depends on a process of stream classification by CT DEEP. These classifications are extremely important to the future of each stream. DEEP recently finished the classifications for the Housatonic, Hudson and Southwest Coastal River Basins.
The CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) will hold two Information Sessions on the proposed classifications, both on Tuesday July 24, one from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, the second from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Both sessions will be at the Western Connecticut Council of Governments, 1 Riverside Road, in Sandy Hook (Newtown), CT.
Here is a link to the DEEP website for more information about the proposed classifications.
Comments on the proposal are due September 21, 2018. Rivers Alliance would be happy to work on this with you.
The maps are available online and can be zoomed in and out. Click on any stream segment to see the criteria used to classify that segment. For more information on the details of the classification process please see their fact sheet or the their technical support document.
