We welcome inquiries from the media and view them as opportunities to interface thoughtfully with the public. We make every effort to have facts, resources and responses available whenever people call—whether it’s the public, the media, an organization or elected official. Sometimes our actions drive a news story. At other times our expertise is called upon for commentary on issues affecting aquatic environments. We are here to share what we know.

For immediate information, contact us at: 413-772-2020.

If there is not a looming deadline, you can email specific members of our staff, including the Director and the River Stewards for each state.


Our website is a great resource for background information and specific facts. You can view all the latest CRC press releases and news at our All News page. We welcome you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for news and updates.


We are often aware of river-related news before the media is aware of a developing story. You can sign up to receive these emails and stay up-to-date on all the latest Connecticut River news.

The Council’s work is complex and ongoing. If you can’t find what you are looking for, give us a call at 413-772-2020.
