Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission

Appointed Commission
About the Commission:

The Inland Wetlands and Watercourse Commission (IWWC) is charged by Connecticut General Statutes, §22a-45 to regulate activities in or near wetlands and/or watercourses in the Town of Andover. The Commission discharges this obligation by provisions set forth in the Town of Andover Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Regulations. These regulations require that all landowners and their agents who propose activity within 100 feet of wetlands or within 200 feet of an area of special concern (e.g. Hop River, Andover Lake, and other watercourses as specified in the IWW Regulations) to first obtain a permit from the IWWC or its agent before the start of work. These activities include, but are not limited to, the cutting of trees, removal or deposition of material, disturbance of natural drainage and construction of new residences.

This Commission meets the first Monday of each month at 7:00pm in the Community Room. Please contact the building department with any questions regarding this Commission or if you are interested in serving on this Commission. Below is a summary of the Commission’s activities for the year.

Five members appointed by the Board of Selectmen who shall serve two year terms.

Thank you to lifetime resident and volunteer Rick Osborne for your time serving on the IWWC and volunteerism! You will be missed. Rest in peace.
