Information about Enfield's Aquifers and useful Links

According to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), the word "aquifer" is defined as any geological formation capable of holding significant quantities of water to wells. Most wells in Connecticut are drilled into bedrock because bedrock is Connecticut's predominant geological feature. More information on Connecticut's Aquifers can be viewed on the DEEP Connecticut Aquifers.

Connecticut has 123 Aquifers with 127 being active well fields, in the Aquifer Protection Areas located in 80 Connecticut Towns. Enfield has 5 Level A Mapped Aquifers, which according to the State of Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, Level A delineates the final Aquifer Protection Area boundaries which becomes the boundary used for land use controls. These land use controls are designed to protect the aquifers from contamination, pollution, and to preserve public drinking water for generations to come. The Enfield Mapped Aquifers can be viewed here: Enfield Aquifer Protection Areas. The Aquifer Protection Area Program protects major public water supply wells in sand and gravel aquifers. Groundwater must be protected and preserved as it can easily become contaminated with excessive amounts of pollution like pesticides and herbicides, septic tank leaks, improperly lined land fills, or toxic materials that seep through the soil. 

More information on Connecticut's Aquifer Protection Program can be viewed at the CT DEEP Aquifer Protection Area Program 

The Town of Enfield's Aquifer Protection Regulations can be found here: Enfield APA regulations.
