This past Sunday there was a terrific article about Mumford Cove (Connecticut) and Long Island Sound in the New York Times. Kirk Johnson tells the story of how Paulann Sheets led the fight to move a sewage treatment plant drain pipe from the cove to the Thames River.

Another view of the Mystic, Connecticut drawbridge. There’s a nice park next to the river that provides an excellent view of the bridge openings and the boats passing through. In the summer, there’s quite a bit of boat traffic here.
