In a letter from their lawyer, Riverhouse Properties LLC, the corporation that was to swap their 87-acre wooded parcel in Higganum for the 17-acre Wildlife Management Area overlooking the Connecticut River in Haddam, informed the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEE P) in mid-April that they will not be pursuing the swap as it stands now.
