Housatonic River CT Proposed Wild and Scenic River Designation

Northeast Regional Office » Housatonic River CT Proposed Wild and Scenic River Designation » Document List

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.
