East Branch Trout Brook
Flood Mitigation and Culvert Replacement
The East Branch Trout Brook is a tributary of Trout Brook and the Park River that ultimately drains to the Connecticut River. The Brook drains a 1.4 square-mile watershed and flows through the central portion of West Hartford including through, beneath and around residential areas and the former University of Connecticut West Hartford campus
The Town of West Hartford had contracted with Milone and MacBroom to evaluate flooding on the East Branch Trout Brook between Asylum Avenue and just north of Albany Avenue. The goal of the analysis was to identify the cause(s) of and propose measures to alleviate flooding in the project area. Included in the assessment was an updated hydrologic and hydraulic analysis of the East Branch Trout Brook that better characterized flooding conditions and identified conditions that were exacerbating flooding.
Questions or comments on the report should be directed to the Town Engineer.
