A Plan to Restore Stamford's Mill River

Stamford’s plans to restore the Mill River and the public lands that border it is nothing if not ambitious. Among many, many other things, the project would open up access to Long Island Sound for kayakers via a new 160-foot-long dock, create new areas to fish, and remove a dam that would restore the river’s natural flow and perhaps allow fish to spawn again. The Stamford Advocate’s story is here.

Full plans are being unveiled this week, and the city is looking for private donations to make it a reality. There’s plenty of money in Stamford, especially in the northern part of town, through which the Mill River flows before it reaches the heart of the city. Let’s hope they can tap into it.
