About the FRCC

The Farmington River Coordinating Committee is integral to the implementation of the Upper Farmington River Management Plan. The Committee is comprised of appointed representatives from the five riverfront towns, Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), Metropolitan District Commission (MDC), National Park Service (NPS), Farmington River Watershed Association (FRWA), and Farmington River Anglers Association (FRAA). Monthly meetings are typically held at the Committee's office at Squire's Tavern; just inside Peoples State Forest in Pleasant Valley. See our calendar for upcoming meeting dates.
