Rainfall Monitoring

Protecting Our Fisherman


Rainfall is monitored at the Health Department in cooperation with the shellfish commissions of Norwalk and Westport. Rainfall amounts are used to determine the open or closed status of the conditionally approved shellfishing areas in Norwalk, Darien, and Westport, as set forth in the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

The MOU is the agreement between the Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Aquaculture, City of Norwalk, Town of Darien, and Town of Westport officials to manage the conditionally approved areas.
