DAM REMOVAL 
THURSDAY, AUGUST 10 at 10:00 AM ET

Lincoln Avenue Park in Manville, Somerset County, NJ

A ceremony to start the removal of the Weston Mill Dam in Manville, an important goal for MVPC and the Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association, was held. The leadership of both groups is pictured here.

​Removing the dam will help restore an historic route for migrating American shad and other fish that has been blocked for nearly three centuries, improve water quality, and increase safety for recreational users of the river. The project is being funded by a settlement for natural resource damages.
