Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The purpose of the Winnicut Dam Removal Feasibility Study is to evaluate options for the restoration of native diadromous and resident fisheries, including alewife and blueback herring, in the Winnicut River ecosystem. The primary objective for achieving this restoration goal would be to improve upstream and downstream fish passage within the Winnicut River, with a secondary objective of enhancing the overall function of the Winnicut River ecosystem. The feasibility of each option was assessed with respect to its impacts to adjacent infrastructure, groundwater and wells, recreational use, natural resources, and historical and archeological resources.
