Report Hunting Violations at Ash Creek

Over the years, DEEP has closed certain areas to waterfowl hunting or imposed additional restrictions at some sites. These actions are taken when DEEP finds that the physical setting of a particular locality presents an unreasonable risk that hunters may violate the regulations regarding minimum distances to dwellings or the regulations regarding shooting toward dwellings or people.

Ecohistory of Ash Creek Presentation on March 20th

An historical ecological analysis of the Ash Creek tidal estuary was sponsored by the Ash Creek Conservation Association and undertaken by One Nature, LLC.  The historical perspective ranged from prehistoric times to the present day and recommendations for protecting the fragile and ever dwindling barrier spit and beach areas from further erosion.   Bryan Quin, RLA, of One Nature, LLC gave the presentation to a full capacity gathering at the Fayerweather Yacht Club on March 20, 2013.  Videos of the session are divided into two parts below for easier viewing.

 

Dredging of Channel in March

Dredging of the channel to the South Benson Marina will begin the first or second week of March.  There Town of Fairfield has hired Julian Construction as their contractor.  The project will finish by the end of March.  Most of the dredging will be conducted from the Fairfield side, but there will be a machine on the the Bridgeport side.  It will not be located near the plantings.  The Town of Fairfield has obtained approvals from the State of Connecticut's DEEP and is coordinating with the City of Bridgeport even though the equipment will be on Fairfield land.

Fox Street Pedestrian Bridge - February 2013 Update

 

The first meeting of a Stakeholder Information Session on the Ash Creek Pedestrian Bridge Feasibility Study was held on February 5, 2013. The Ash Creek Street pedestrian bridge would be an exciting development as it would create a more direct access to the train station from the southwestern section of Black Rock. The Fairfield Metro train station would be within walking distance for many more Black Rockers as they could cross Ash Creek, ideally at the end of Fox Street, although there are two other options in the study.
