Redding Conservation Commission
Minutes of Site Inspection

LOCATION:    Arianit Krasniqi     Application #20-05   280 Ethan Allen Highway
DATE:            March 8, 2020
TIME:             9:15 AM

COMMISSION:  D. Pattee, S. Green, B. Hill, C. Matzke, W. Perlman, S. Robinson

APPLICANT: A. Krasniqi

The Commission went to the wet area at the north end of the property to begin the inspection.  A. Krasniqi cleared the debris from the entrance to the drain pipe.  The location of the proposed drainage pipe line was followed to the existing outlet system near the driveway entrance.  The system then drains under Route 7 to the swamp next to the Norwalk River.  That location was inspected and it was noted that the water level was higher than normal which may pose a future drainage problem.  A. Krasniqi indicated that is a blockage in the river causing the high water level.

An investigation of the river revealed a beaver lodge, signs of beaver activity, and a dam across the river causing the high water level.

The site inspection ended at 9:50 am.
