The Watershed: A Scenic Greenway!

In 2015, The West River and its tributaries were designated a "greenway" by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection! Now, the real work begins: putting this vision for a linear park and trail into action.

We have a plan for reclaiming the West River. You can help.
 
 

The Watershed:Watershed Plan

We have a plan for reclaiming the West River -- thanks to funding from the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, leadership from the Connecticut Fund for the Environment/Save the Sound, technical expertise from Fuss & O'Neill, and grassroots involvement from the Coalition and its members.  The plan, adopted in August 2015 and aligned with EPA watershed plan elements, sets our path forward.

We know a lot about the challenges facing the river.
