Housatonic River CT Proposed Wild and Scenic River Designation
The Governor of Connecticut has applied under Section 2(a)(ii) of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act to have 41 miles of the Housatonic River from the MA/CT border downstream to Boardman Bridge , New Milford, CT declared a component of the National Wild and Scenic River System to be managed and administered through the locally-led Housatonic River Commission. The National Park Service will review the proposed nomination to determine whether the river meets the requirements for eligibility and suitability. A draft of the NPS' findings in the form of an evaluation and Environmental Assessment will be published for public and agency comment.
