VIDEO: Senator Announces Funding for Winnapaug Pond Dredging (USA)

U.S. Senator Jack Reed recently joined with officials from Westerly, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) to announce over $1 million to help dredge Winnapaug Pond and revitalize its ecosystem.

The NRCS project will help restore habitat and remove approximately 70,600 cubic yards of sediment that was deposited in Winnapaug Pond by Superstorm Sandy.

The federal funds, which total $938,430, include $780,000 in Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) funding to support dredging and restoration efforts at Winnapaug Pond, as well as about $158,000 in technical assistance.
