Wednesday, September 09, 2020

NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) — The removal of an old, unused dam from a tributary of Vermont’s Dog River in Northfield has opened up 26 miles of stream habitat, creating better conditions for trout and other species of fish, officials say.

More than 24,000 cubic yards of sediment that had built up behind the dam is being removed.

Without progress in fishing, threatens to alter the agreement on the Irish border

With pressure and unilateral decisions. This is how the British Government wants to break the blockade in which the negotiations with the EU are to define their future relationship after Brexit. At least this is the taste of the recent announcements and decisions of 10 Downing Street have left.
