Interior Secretary announces end to National Blueway System, Connecticut River keeps designation

January 3, 2014 - Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell has announced an end to the National Blueway System established in 2012. However, the Connecticut River will retain its designation as the nation's first, and now only, National Blueway. The designation recognizes the many successes and on-the-ground accomplishments of the residents, communities, public agencies, and others who have participated in partnership efforts in the Connecticut River watershed, spanning well over half a century.
