Chris Bellucci, a Supervising Environmental Analyst with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CT DEEP), speaks about the work he and his colleagues are doing to measure stream connectivity with trail cameras and to develop a cold water stream habitat web map. The cameras, one of which is operating now at Comstock Brook in Wilton, CT are an innovative new method pioneered by CT DEEP to monitor stream conditions by taking pictures every hour. Documenting the occurrence of dry, disconnected sections of stream is a first step towards addressing the problems they create for fish and other aquatic life.
