Better Flushing, More Fish, Fewer Mosquitoes

With the help of Suffolk County Vector Control the removal of old non-functional culverts and replacement with a more natural opening, we expect to see greater tidal flow in and out of the salt marshes in the project area. This tidal flow will allow for wildlife, especially fish to thrive in the area making it less hospitable to salt marsh mosquitoes.
