  • IWR Research and Information Transfer Projects: This page contains a list of projects either currently or previously funded by CT IWR. Some proposal, abstracts and final reports are available here.
  • CT Aquatic Nuisance Species Project: Links to project WIKI and to prototype Early Detection and Reporting database.
  • Water Policy, Planning and Legislation: Links to project reports, reference material and documents that will be useful to those developing water policy for the state of Connecticut.
  • Fenton River Project: As part of the impact assessment of UConn’s water use, The CT IWR has been awarded a research grant to investigate the relationships between fish habitat and instream flow for a section of the Fenton River from Old Turnpike Road to Mansfield Hollow Lake. The overall goal of the study is to develop relationships between instream flow rates in the Fenton River and habitat availability for selected fish species and life stages.
  • Golf Course Water Management Project: In 2001, the Institute collaborated with
    the CT Department of Environmental Protection on an Information Transfer
    Project related to golf course water management. As a part of this project,
    IWR chaired an Advisory Committee charged with developing a set of
    Best Management Practices for Golf Course Water. A conference was held
    in the Fall of 2001 where the committee's report was presented and discussed.
  • Invasive Species: The Institute is cooperating with volunteers (Mansfield Plant Monitors) from the town of Mansfield on a project to monitor the effects of invasive shrub removal in a riparian corridor in Schoolhouse Brook Park.
