Scope/Content: Abstract: The Fairmount Park Commission (FPC) has authorized URS Corporation (URS) to prepare an analysis of fish passage alternatives at two dams owned by FPC; Verree Road Dam and Roosevelt Boulevard Dam. Most dams trap sediment within the stream channel and along the flooplain. The volume and type of sediment retained varies and is influenced by numerous factors including: geology, land use, length of time the dam has been in place, condition of the dam, and watershed morphology (valley width and channel slope). All of these factors need to be investigated when considering fish passage alternatives at dams. The fact that the two dams are historic structures will be a factor in FPC's decision about which fish passage methods to implement.
