Waterford is a shoreline town bounded on three sides by water. Long Island Sound is our south boundary, the Niantic River flows along our west boundary, and the Thames River flows by our east boundary. Waterford enjoys a Selectman / Representative Town Meeting / Board of Finance form of government which is rooted in its New England traditions. The town government is composed of boards, commissions, and agencies, and is served by a variety of community groups. Waterford is a home, a workplace, a shopping place, and a beautiful destination for visitors.
