Hopefully this dam removal in Milford won't go as bad!

....or this one on the Raritan. Interesting comments at the end of the article....
Fish will benefit from dam removal on the Raritan River, paid for by past owner of Tenneco plant in Raritan Twp. | NJ.com
Oddly enough there is a Mirror Lake in the Whippany drainage that the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee (WRWAC) is watching with the same situation. This group is leaning towards dam removal since it is much cheaper. The WRWAC will then propose a bio-retention basin which is something with a lot of interest on the Whippany side. It's all about ground water replacement and flooding mitigation (and goose management) these days with porous pavement, bio-retention basins, filterra units, and rain barrels (remember them!). We are trying to disconnect storm water sources from direct entry into streams, which seems odd with TU's mission of connecting streams. However, the TU version is connecting sections of stream not disconnecting rain gutters from streams.
It has a top release dam that dumps warm water, at trout killing temperatures, almost directly into the Ramapo.I produce an annual fund raiser at Crystal Lake and have been worried it won't be there much longer. It's really a fun place to go see a band in the summer. I don't really see how breaching the dam will do anything meaningful for any local fishing. It's not really connected to the Ramapo. A member did reach out to me yesterday to let me know he's 90% sure it will be business as usual. As far as the conflict amongst the various members and forced members.....that's all theirs to resolve.
