2014 Dam Restoration Update

Mill pond area cleanup


Work on the dam started by removing trees and brush in the mill pond area above the high water mark. The cut off walls, the sections of the concrete at the far end of the old dam, were set upright and stabilized by filling on both sides with a soil/cement mixture and rocks. More rocks were added to the down river side to lend extra support. The area was seeded over. Stones were salvaged for future use in next year's project. The rest of the area was graded and seeded to complete this year's work. The goal is to preserve the existing structure. Next year the work will preserve next ten to twelve feet of the stone structure which encompasses the transition from the cut off walls to the spill way. That is also a transition from the concrete structure to a dry laid rubble structure.
