What We Do

The Town of Thompson Inland Wetlands Commission regulates all operations and uses within inland wetlands and watercourses and any earth moving, fill, construction or clear-cutting of trees within 100 feet of any wetland or watercourse, and within 200 feet of the ten most noteworthy wetlands in Thompson, as identified in the Town of Thompson Inland Wetland Inventory, prepared by the Northeast Connecticut Regional Planning Agency, 1980 (available in the Inland Wetlands Office). In addition, the CT General Statutes and town regulations allow for the regulation of any activity beyond  the 100 foot regulated area if specific conditions, such as steep slopes, exist.

Members are appointed for a 5-year term.
