West River Water Festival celebrates 5 years of watershed advocacy

west_river_group

The West River Coalition recently celebrated its 5th anniversary at the West River Water Festival. The coalition is made up of over 35 organizations, towns and many dedicated individuals working together to improve the West River, its watershed and its tributaries. The watershed and its tributaries flow through Prospect, Bethany, Woodbridge, Hamden, Orange, New Haven and West Haven before entering New Haven Harbor and eventually Long Island Sound.  The Watershed drains approximately 35 square miles and is roughly 25 miles in length from source to sound.  Some 75,000 people live within this watershed.    


This wonderful group of dedicated coalition members has secured Connecticut Greenway Status, contributed to the West River Watershed Plan, developed Greenway trail signage, supported the Pond Lily Dam removal project and subsequent habitat restoration. They have partnered with South Central Regional Council of Governments to develop a comprehensive Greenway Map and initiated planning conversations with the CTDOT and municipalities about pedestrian and bike access and management of highway water runoff.
