Five Mile River Action Group
One of Norwalk’s featured landmarks is the Five Miler River, a large river that travels through West Norwalk and neighboring towns. This magnificent river is teeming with wildlife that abuts several residential properties in West Norwalk. Unfortunately, the state of the river has been depleting over the past several years. Factors such as climate change and unwanted material entering the river have caused flooding issues, resulting in damaged property and concerned neighbors. The West Norwalk Association is working with the Five Mile River Action Group, a small group of Norwalk residents who are working with the city to improve the quality of the river and inform residents about steps that they can take to help improve the river, to keep you informed about the river’s current state. On this page, you will find links to information about the river, newsletters that have been sent out as email blasts, and other documents concerning the river.
If you have any questions about the Five Mile River, would like to learn more about what we are doing to improve the river, or are interested in joining the Five Mile River Action Group, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
