DEEP makes changes to state park capacity, trout stocking

The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is putting off stocking trout in Fairfield County  because of coronavirus.  Some municipalities have restricted public access to lands and parks to help promote social distancing and prevent crowding. 

The fish have been reallocated to neighboring areas so anglers can still access the stocked trout. 

There are new restrictions on entrance to state parks, forests, and other lands.  In light of significant visitors in recent days, a new state executive order gives the commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection the authorization to ban visitors after the property has reached a capacity to supporting social distancing policies.

These penalties can include fines and even arrest, for interfering or obstructing any lawful civil preparedness activity.  Violators will be subject to a 30-day eviction from all State Parks and other lands under DEEP’s oversight.
