Connecticut Watershed Maps
Way back in the early days of NEMO, a map for each of Connecticut's 169 towns was created showing the watersheds that make up each town. Although the maps are not cutting edge and not even new, they are still quite useful. Get yours below.

Applications To Get You Started:
subregional basins are experiencing water quality problems (pollution,
erosion, flooding, etc.) and what areas of town should be working
toward their improvement?
watersheds are shared with which neighboring towns? What do
these towns' plans and regulations say about these areas? Which
of our neighboring towns will we invite to our next meeting
to discuss known water quality problems and how we can address
them in a coordinated fashion?
a development being proposed in a basin experiencing any of
the water quality problems you've identified? How will the new
development impact/address these problems?
a new development is proposed in town, consider which basin
and where in the basin it is located and how this will effect
water resources. For example, a development proposed in the
head waters of a basin will have different impacts than one
proposed in the lower portions of a watershed.
a development proposing a detention pond? Are basin-wide impacts
a development needs septic systems how many currently exist
in the basin? Are they functioning properly? Are water resources
in the basin experiencing nutrient or other problems that may
be associated with septic systems?
