Wetlands are diverse and not always visible to the eye. In Connecticut, they are defined by the chemical and physical characteristics of the first 18 to 24 inches of soil.
If you plan to do any work on your property, it is a good idea to find out whether you have any wetlands or watercourses. You may have a staff member from the town’s Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency take a look and determine what work is allowed. Call 203-622-7736.
