Herring Run Improvement Project
At the Cape Cod Salties' February meeting, Natural Resources Chm. Dave Croft signed up 19 members for this years' Dennis Herring Run improvement program. If anyone else wishes to help out, please contact Dave at 508-760-1417 or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Work will be done between March 15 and April 15 and Dave will contact the volunteers as soon as the date is set. Culverts under Rte 6A were replaced by the town last year opening Scargo Brook from Sesuit Harbor to Paddocks Path Rd. Our work will be from that point to Scargo Lake.
There are two smaller culverts under Paddocks Path and Dr. Lord Rd. which probably will not be replaced before the run begins. Hopefully, we can get them opened and the remainder of the run cleaned up. If this is accomplishedâ€¦it will be the first time in several years the run has been wide open.
The Bound Brook run will also need cleaning. We did a lot of work on that run last yearâ€¦so it should be an easy clean-up.
Because of the serious depletion of Alewife/River Herring stocks in most runs, this stream improvement work is very important. If you have questions or want to help out, please call or e-mail Dave.
