Wetlands and Marshes

Fairfield’s wetlands and watercourses are an irreplaceable but fragile natural resource, essential to the Town’s ecological health. They are an interrelated web of nature essential to an adequate supply of surface and underground water, providing hydrological stability and control of flooding and erosion. They recharge and purify groundwater, supporting many forms of animal, aquatic, and plant life. These valuable water resources are carefully monitored and regulated by many Town bodies, the CT Department of Energy Environmental Protection (CTDEEP), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
