Stream Surveys Soon Underway
This spring, field technicians from Fuss & O’Neill, the consulting firm we hired to assist us in revising our Watershed Management Plan, will be conducting visual assessment surveys along impaired stream segments of the Pomperaug and Weekeepeemee Rivers. Surveys data will help us better gauge the scope of factors that may be contributing to reduced water quality conditions of these waterways.
The findings will be used to develop site specific plans for remediating pollutants like bacteria and for restoring instream habitat. These plans will then be incorporated into the updated Watershed Management Plan.
