Stonington, CT, Breakwall Repair Scheduled
November 23, 2012
TheDay.com: Work to repair damage to the east breakwater in Stonington Harbor caused by Tropical Storm Irene last year is slated to begin in the middle of December and take up to two months to complete.
While additional damage may have been done to the 108-year-old breakwater by Hurricane Sandy, Army Corps of Engineers Project Manager Mike Walsh said Monday that the contractor will do as much work as it can with the $1 million allocated for the project by the federal government. During Sandy, waves could be seen swamping the half-mile-long breakwater and coming through sections damaged by Irene.
