Malletts Creek

Malletts Creek originates in the Northeast portion of Milton at Malletts Pond. The Creek flows west toward the center of Milton, winding down gently between the Colchester-Milton line.  In the southeastern part of Milton, it flows into Malletts Creek Marsh, an important wetland.    

Development has been significant in this area, impacting the Creek and its tributaries.
