DARIEN Conn. -- The Darien Advisory Commission on Coastal Waters will study the water quality in Goodwives River.

“We want to ensure that our waterways are clean for the benefit of all our citizens,” said Flip Huffard, Chair of the Advisory Commission on Coastal Waters.

Beginning in August, the study is being conducted for Darien by Harbor Watch, a program of Earthplace in Westport and is expected to be completed in the coming year. The study will examine bacteria levels along the Goodwives River. Harbor Watch will conduct testing from storm water manholes and outfalls.

During the study, Darien residents may see Harbor Watch employees wearing yellow safety vests conducting testing on roads in the area of the Goodwives River.

“Darien joins many other coastal towns in Fairfield County in working closely with Harbor Watch to examine water quality in local rivers. We look forward to building this partnership and improving the health of our waterways.” said Dr. Sarah Crosby, Director of Harbor Watch.
