East Hampton Star: For more than a decade, alewives have failed to make their spring migration up a narrow brook in Northwest Woods, East Hampton [Long Island], where once they teemed. But if all goes as planned, the fish could soon return to one of the South Fork’s storied runs.

After a false start several years ago, work is expected to begin next month on replacing a dilapidated culvert under Alewife Brook Road with a much larger one that would allow the fish to reach Scoy Pond, perhaps in time to spawn in April [2014].
