Conservation leaders, federal and state officials, and other partners gathered yesterday on the Patapsco River to celebrate the removal of Bloede Dam, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources said in their latest announcement. “Water is life, and healthy rivers are absolutely vital to our health, economy, and communities,” said Bob Irvin, President of American Rivers, at the ceremony.“Today, we’re celebrating a new chapter for the Patapsco and all of the people who depend on this river. This is one of the most significant dam removal and river restoration projects in the country. We applaud the exemplary leadership from the state of Maryland and the collaboration and dedication of many public and private partners.”“Today marks a major milestone in the reclamation and restoration of the Patapsco River,” Maryland Department of Natural Resources Secretary, Mark Belton, added.“With the removal of Bloede Dam from within Patapsco Valley State Park, we return a river to its natural flow and state, enhance fish migration and passage, improve water quality in its banks and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay, and better protect and serve our guests and patrons.”The benefits of the project extend beyond the river environment to coastal habitats, where sediment carried by the river will replenish marshes and beaches, making the coast more resilient to extreme storms.Since Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast in 2012, the service has helped fund 30 coastal resilience projects in 11 states, using more than $100 million from the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act of 2013. Twelve dam removals have restored nearly 100 miles of river to their natural state.Following the initial blast of explosives to breach the dam, crews will continue demolition work for the next three months. The site will remain closed to the public until July 2019.
ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Fit-again all-rounder Deandra Dottin is poised to play her first international in 12 months after being recalled to the Caribbean side for next month’s Women’s Twenty20 World Cup in Australia.The 28-year-old Barbadian was sidelined for most of last year, having picked up a shoulder injury and then forced to undergo surgery.Dottin, the region’s most experienced Windies Women player with 110 T20 Internationals, returned to action during a franchise tournament in Trinidad last month before resuming active Windies training during the pre-World Cup camp in recent weeks.She is one of several changes to the squad which faced India in a five-match series last November, with Lee-Ann Kirby, Britney Cooper, Shamilia Connell and Cherry-Ann Fraser all called up for the February 21 to March 8 campaign.Veteran Stacy-Ann King, recalled last year following a three-year break, has been axed again while Kyshona Knight, Natasha McLean and Shabika Gajnabi have also been left out.Captain Stafanie Taylor, who missed the T20 series against India through injury, is also fit again and back at the helm.Chief selector Ann Browne-John said the return of Taylor and Dottin, who bowls sharp medium pace, was a fillip for the side, especially with the experienced new-ball fast-bowling pair of Connell and Shakera Selman both also fit again.“The World Cup squad continues to show a blend of experience and young emerging players,” Browne-John said. “It is boosted by the return of captain Stafanie Taylor who was out of the T20 series against India through injury. We are also pleased to welcome back Deandra Dottin who made such a big impact on International cricket in the past few years until she was sidelined by injury.“The two experienced fast bowlers Connell and Selman who have also been on the injured list are now back in the squad.”Twenty-year-old Guyanese Fraser is the only uncapped player in the squad while Kirby, 32, played the last of her six international matches 12 years ago.Cooper featured for West Indies for most of last year but missed the India series.Browne-John praised the inclusion of both Kirby and Fraser, noting they were both expected to be assets.“Lee Ann Kirby returns to the team after an extended absence but she has shown herself to be a prolific scorer,” she said.“In addition, the introduction of the young fast bowler Cherry-Ann Fraser is ideal for the Australian pitches which are generally fast with some bounce. The team has the experience and talent to excel at the World Cup.”West Indies have been installed in Group B of the event alongside England, South Africa, Pakistan and Thailand.The 2016 champions, Windies reached the semi-finals of the last tournament staged in the Caribbean before going out to eventual champions Australia.SQUAD – Stafanie Taylor (captain), Anisa Mohammed (vice-captain), Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews, Chedean Nation, Lee-Ann Kirby, Britney Cooper, Shemaine Campbelle, Chinelle Henry, Afy Fletcher, Shamilia Connell, Shakera Selman, Sheneta Grimmond, Cherry-Ann Fraser, Aaliyah Alleyne.
