THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS’ PLAN TO DUMP 250,000 CUBIC YARDS OF TOXIC
DREDGING WASTE IN NEW HAVEN HARBOR.

representatives at Sea Wall Park.

recovering environmental health.

**The NHYC dock is a short way to the west of Anthony’s Catering. Except for kayaks, canoes and dinghies that can be tied to the west side of the dock or pulled up on shore, visiting boaters are asked to anchor at the edge of the mooring field and radio on 68 for the club launch to bring you in, or sound an air horn three times. Please
don’t tie up at vacant moorings.
