The inland wetlands and watercourses of the State of Connecticut are an irreplaceable but fragile natural resource with which the citizens of the state have been endowed.  The wetlands and watercourses are an interrelated web of nature essential to the adequate supply of surface and underground water; to hydrological stability and control of flooding and erosion; to the recharging and purification of groundwater; and to the existence of many forms of animal, aquatic and plant life. 

The Conservation and Inland Wetlands Commission of the Town of Bridgewater was established on July 24, 1980.  The Commission is charged with implementing the purposes and provisions of the “Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Regulations” of the Town of Bridgewater and the “Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Act” of the State of Connecticut. 

It is the Commission’s belief that the preservation and protection of the wetlands and watercourses from random, unnecessary, undesirable, and unregulated uses, disturbance and destruction is in the public interest and is essential to the health, welfare and safety of the citizens of the state.
