The Berkshire National Fish Hatchery (Hatchery) is located on the east side of Hatchery Road approximately one-half mile north of Hartsville in the northwestern portion of the township of New Marlborough. Situated on a 148-acre tract of land, the property spans across the township line between New Marlborough and Monterey and is characterized by steep hills, minimal level topography, and dense mature forests. The Konkapot River flows through the western-most portion of the property, along the west side of Hatchery Road. The hatchery complex is situated in the southwest corner of the tract and consists of six primary buildings as well as associated structures including 10 concrete rearing pools, a raceway, four ponds, and memorial monument. Additions features include a shed, visitors’ kiosk, and nature trails. Water is supplied by a well field with a catch basin and well house that channel the natural springs that flow throughout the property.
