Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission
Who We Are
The Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Commission (IWWC) is an appointed commission charged with the protection of wetlands and watercourses in Windsor. Through its Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Regulations, the IWWC regulates all activity in close proximity to, or otherwise impacting wetlands and watercourses.
The IWWC is supported by the Planning Department and the Staff Development Team: a multi-disciplinary team of Town officials charged with comprehensively reviewing all development proposals and applications pending before the Commission.

Glossary of Terms
Did You Know?
Often non-native, invasive species of trees and shrubs grow and spread more easily than many native species and can quickly crowd them out. Japanese Knotweed, Multi Flora Rose, and some types of Bamboo can quiclky get out of control and become difficult to remove once they are established. Norway Maples grow quickly, spread great distances with their helicopter-like seed pods, and their dense canopy shades out native maple and other hardwood species, quiclkly creating a monoculture forest of Norway Maples. Avoid planting these and other invasive species and if given a choice, choose a comparable native tree or shrub over a non-native species if available.
