• Sacred Heart, Audubon To Build Artificial Reef


“Sacred Heart University and Connecticut Audubon Society have been awarded a $59,000 Long Island Sound Futures Fund grant to construct an innovative “living shoreline” project at Stratford Point….

”The living shoreline includes the construction of a reef through the installation of 40 permeable concrete reef balls — a technology never before used in Long Island Sound — along with the restoration of a salt marsh behind the reef.

”The project will be constructed in roughly 3.5 acres of intertidal zone in the 40-acre coastal estuary restoration site at Stratford Point, which is managed by Connecticut Audubon Society.”
