The goal of the Inland Wetland Commission is to uphold environmental condition  through education & through the care and security of wetlands and other natural resources.  The Inland Wetlands Commission is a seven member board serving six year terms.

The Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission (IWWC) is charged by the Connecticut General Statutes, section 22a-36 through 22a-45 to regulate in or near wetlands and/or watercourses in the Town of Chaplin for the purposes of protecting Chaplin’s natural resources. The Commission discharges this obligation by provisions set forth in the Town of Chaplin Inland Wetlands and Watercourses regulations. These regulations require all land owners and their agents who propose any activity within 100’ of a wetland or watercourse or within 200’ of the high water mark of the Natchaug River to contact the Wetlands agent, Joe Theroux at (860) 455-0073 extension 316, for a determination on whether this activity should go before the Commission for a permit. These activities may include, but not be limited to, cutting trees, removal or depositing of material and/or soil, disturbance of the natural drainage, erection of buildings and grading of soil.
