Join other stakeholders in the Ten Mile River watershed as planning begins to create a comprehensive watershed management plan for the region.
The Ten Mile River watershed covers 200 square miles on the western side of the Housatonic River watershed, straddling 2 states and ultimately drains to the Housatonic River and Long Island Sound. Dover, Amenia, and North East comprise the majority of the Ten Mile River watershed in NY with small portions of Ancram, Stanford, Washington, Union Vale, and Pawling as well as the Villages of Millerton and Pawling. Parts of the Towns of Sharon and Salisbury in Connecticut also lie within the Ten Mile River watershed.
Comprised of local and regional officials, non-profits, and professionals, the Ten Mile River Collaborative has received funding from NFWF Long Island Sound Futures Fund to begin the development of a comprehensive watershed management plan for the Ten Mile River watershed which includes the Webatuck and Wassaic Creeks, the Swamp River, and the mainstem of the Ten Mile River.
