Misery Brook is one of the many tributaries of the Quinnipiac River.
All the brooks and streams flow into the Quinnipiac are important to
its health. Many of these brooks flow through suburban backyards and
will carry pollutants from those areas. Misery brook has been impacted
north of here from the filling of its wetlands. Wetlands help remove
pollutants and maintain a steady source of water for the river.
