Update: Lines In The Marsh Here’s What I Found Out
Who cuts the symmetrical lines in the marshes? It’s obviously done to provide salt water with nutrients and keep the marsh healthy (that didn’t sound very scientific did it?)
Can someone clue us in as to what they are about and who cuts them in or cut them in and how are they maintained? This is just a random screen shot of a google map near Farnhams in Essex MA
There are several links to websites which explain how they came to be and yes it was a WPA depression project designed for mosquito control.
