Sanitary landfills can cause considerable harm to sensitive ecosystems if they are not properly located, designed, and managed. The purpose of the reports are to summarize the proximity of sanitary landfills in Connecticut to wetlands and deepwater habitats (i.e., rivers, lakes, streams, bays, etc.) and present data on the individual landfills. The sanitary landfills were identified on U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's National Wetlands Inventory maps. Most sanitary landfills in Connecticut are located in or are close to either wetlands or deepwater habitats. These facilities have the potential to adversely affect sensitive ecosystems, such as wetlands and deepwater habitats, either through habitat alterations or through the migration of contaminants from sanitary landfills.
