  Flags flapped, boats rocked in Sesuit Harbor, clouds rolled overhead as assorted worthies and the local cognoscenti celebrated the Environmental Protection Agency’s official designation of all of Cape Cod Bay as a no discharge area.

“This is just a great day for Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts as well as the town of Dennis,” declared Dennis Harbormaster Terry Clen.

“This is a significant accomplishment,” agreed Congressman William Delahunt. “This effort will have benefits far beyond the lives of all of us who are present here today so when we pass our legacy to the next generation everyone who participated in this effort can say we did something that made a difference.”
