MILFORD -

Work has finally begun on a project that will deepen three ponds in Milford.

All three ponds are along the Wepawaug River, which drains into Milford Harbor, and haven't been dredged since the 1970s.

The $2 million project was slated to begin last year.

According to city officials, the project is needed to keep Milford Harbor from silting up prematurely.

The first pond to get dredged is the North Street Duck Pond.
