Scope/Content: Abstract: In September of 2004, the Unnamed dam (43-009) on Wolf Creek in Grove City, PA was removed. Built in 1885 to power a grist mill, the 5.5-foot high, 105-foot long dam no longer served its original purpose, contributed to local flooding and constituted a public safety hazard. A partnership of local businesses, conservation groups and local citizens were involved in the creation of a park in the former impoundment area. In 2005, the 12-foot high Cunningham Memorial dam in downtown Grove City was removed and its impoundment was also used to create a passive recreation area for local residents and for nearby Grove City College. Wolf Creek is a warmwater tributary to Slippery Rock Creek. The details in this grant report are subject to change.
