POMFRET, Vt. (AP) - A group devoted to protecting the Connecticut River basin is counting up its 2015 accomplishments and planning more work for 2016.

The river marks the border between Vermont and New Hampshire and flows through Massachusetts and Connecticut into Long Island Sound. The Connecticut River Watershed Council is devoted protecting the river and its tributaries.

Projects in 2014 have included removal of an old derelict dam on the Wells River in Groton, Vermont, and replacement of an old, undersized culvert in Strafford, Vermont, to help fish passage and reduce flooding on Abbot Brook.

The annual Source to the Sea Cleanup involved nearly 3,000 volunteers removing 50 tons of debris from the river and its tributaries. Projects set for 2016 include and tree-planting to prevent erosion in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts.
