Watershed Inspections

As part of source water protection Watershed Staff conduct visual inspections of the land, residences, businesses & properties within the watershed of the drinking water reservoirs. This helps minimize pollution & meet Connecticut Public Health Code Regulations.

Watershed inspections are done to ensure drinking water quality and are currently underway.

The inspections focus on outside features of properties including:

  • Lawns & driveways
  • Septic systems
  • Equipment
  • Storm structures & drainage
  • Storage & disposal of materials & waste

Watershed Staff wear a uniform, have an identification badge & travel in a Groton Utilities vehicle and are happy to explain the process when on-site.
