6/12/2024 - Culvert Assessments Underway

Following protocols established by the North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative (NAACC), the Pomperaug River Watershed Coalition (PRWC), a non-profit watershed conservation organization, is continuing their evaluations of stream-road crossings in the Town of Southbury this summer. At sites where streams intersect roads, a crossing structure, such as a bridge or culvert, is installed to allow a stream to flow from one side of the road to the other, and traffic to pass over the stream. The goal of PRWC’s assessments is to identify which crossings are in greatest need of restoration or replacement and to help prioritize crossing improvements that will benefit the community and the environment.

The work is being done by PRWC interns. They are wearing orange or yellow vests to be easily identified. Because the work is taking place near the roads, please slow down when you see them.
