Increasing demands for water supply in Guilford, Connecticut created a need for the Connecticut Water Company to expand their supply system yield, but in a way that continued to put water protection at the heart of its operations. To support efforts, Connecticut Water Company enlisted SLR to implement protection efforts for the area’s vital wetlands.
A programme of wetland enhancement and inventory was undertaken, with SLR developing a mitigation strategy to offset the wetland impacts, developed the wetland design plans and oversaw construction.
Construction of the 6.2-acre mitigation wetland was completed under the supervision of SLR wetland scientists and the project team implemented an ongoing monitoring programme, to ensure the protection efforts live on.
