CONCORD — In 1953, the state took possession of 18,473 acres and acquired easements on some 40,000 acres from 18 cities and towns along the Merrimack and Connecticut rivers where high water can be held to mitigate flooding downstream. In July, 2006, not long after the "Mother's Day Flood," then Governor John Lynch wrote to his counterpart on Beacon Hill, former governor Mitt Romney, threatening legal action if Massachusetts did not pay the $3.2 million he claimed its owed the communities.
