Rooster River
In 2006, 2007 and 2018 the Rooster River overflowed its banks and flooded several streets and neighborhoods. For a few neighborhoods flooding occurs even more frequently. After holding a handful of neighborhood meetings, Fairfield DPW hired a consultant to perform a hydrologic study of the Rooster River watershed with designs at six strategic locations. This study concentrated on potential detention sites along the Rooster river watershed that would provide some relief for property and homeowners within the watershed.

When funding became available in 2021, the First Selectwoman included $3.25 million in funding towards Rooster River flooding prevention. This request included Construction, property acquisition and Inspection for the project. The purpose of the project is to reduce flooding potential within the Rooster River watershed. In most cases, holding back storm water runoff through detention reduces the flow rate and reduces the amount of flooding for areas downstream that should benefit most homeowners. These construction improvements should reduce the amount of flooding, reduce the frequency of flooding, reduce property damage, improve access, and in improve, water quality.

The proposal includes construction of the proposed detention areas. In some cases, excavation will be required but in most cases, a berm or dike will be constructed to “hold back the water” and to limit environmental impacts. Local inland wetland permits are required. Depending on size and location, CT DEEP and US Army Corps of Engineers permits will be required. The proposal includes construction of the detention areas, potential property acquisition, wetland mitigation, landscaping, and inspection for the project.
