The Village of Seawolf is currently under contemplation of undertaking a Stormwater Remediation Project, which will reduce storm water runoff into University Bay. As a result of the flow of this storm water runoff from the village roads and into University Bay, the local bathing beach and bed of hard clams have undergone closure for an undetermined period of time.
