There's a lot of wetlands in New Canaan and it's the job of the Inland Wetlands Department to protect them and…More watercourses that run through town.
The department will help homeowners strike the necessary balance between preserving the wetlands and enjoying their property.
Any project on wetland property must go through the Inland Wetlands Commission. The Inland Wetlands Department aims to streamline that process by providing a checklist for permit applicants and diverting applications that do not need to be reviewed by the commission.
