{Naugatuck River}   {Hammonassett State Park}   {Connecticut River Valley}   {Sessions Woods}

Within the Stateís borders there are approximately

  • 450,000 acres of wetlands,
  • 6,000 miles of streams and rivers,

  • 600 square miles of estuarine water in Long Island Sound.
Managing these precious resources for today and tomorrow is one of DEEPís most critical missions.
