    Finesville dam???

    Whats the word here? I seen on a different thread that work to remove the dam was to start on or about the begging of this month(november 2011).

    Of coarse i could always just drive there and look.....(its a whole 7 mins away) But by time i get home from work its dark.

    Any new news on the gorge dam? Or the hughesville?

    Re: Finesville dam???

    Weather conditions and high flows have pushed this back a week or so.

    Re: Finesville dam???

    Right now we're looking at Friday of this week, Veteran's Day. Our contractor who is from PA is working with the state DOT to obtain his necessary over the road permits to mobilize his equipment on site this week ahead of the removal. Flows are decent for dam removal although too high for channel restoration. Our plan is to pull the dam this week and let it flush for a few weeks at least before we work to restore the 1/2 mile of channel upstream.

    In the meantime, I received 3 DEP permits for in-channel restoration of the Musky at the former Cliffdale Inn on rt. 57 in Mansfield (Casia Grill currently) and two downstream private properties above Shurts Road in lower Washington Twp. (Warren Cty). That work will also likely begin this year, flows depending. 2012 will see a lot of in-channel restoration work in both the Musky and its tribs along with projects on such rivers as the SBR, NBR, Flat Brook, Paulinskill, Pequest, Squankum Brook, Cresskill Brook, Mason's Run, and Capoolong Creek to name a few. Many others in the planning stages and on additional rivers than the above named.
