Long Reach Fish Take a Vacation

The Sun writes about efforts to dredge the 3-acre Jackson Pond in Long Reach. The project will remove about 15,000 cubic yards of sediment and truck it to a field somewhere in King Contrivance.

About 7,000 fish from the pond, which is dry now, were moved to other ponds in Columbia, Denis Ellis, assistant director of CA's open space management division, told the newspaper.

"After the dredging, Jackson Pond, which will have an average water depth of at least 4 feet, Ellis said, will be refilled with water and aquatic life."
