Hook Pond Work
East Hampton Village will pay just over $56,000, or 37 percent of total cost, to the Nature Conservancy for work done from September 2006 to August 2010 to remove phragmites from the shore of Hook Pond. The Nature Conservancy led the project and covered 63 percent of the cost with private donations, according to Kim Doherty, a grants specialist at the conservancy.
