Community Neighbors Connect On Behalf Of Ash Creek

From Katrina Koerting, CT Post:

About 42,000 sea grass plugs cover the sand spit straddling the Fairfield, Bridgeport line that a month or so ago was in danger of being washed out if a huge storm hit the coastline.

The danger still lingers, but the urgency has ebbed a bit with the recent planting. Bridgeport and Fairfield officials say the sea grass will help hold the sand in place and allow dunes to form, giving the area some much-needed protection and height.
