FIXED AT LAST. Carlisle Cranberry farmer Mark Duffy shakes hands with David McLachlan, Chair of the Chelmsford Conservation Commission, as both stand on top of a recently repaired Chelmsford dam. When the dam failed, water threatened Duffy's cranberry crop which is downstream. The Chelmsford DPW provided the labor. (See "Repairs started for dam near Cranberry Bog," in the August 25 Mosquito.)
