Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: Built around 1900 to 1910, the Lower Lloydell Intake was 5 feet high by 70 feet wide. The dam was originally constructed to create a water reservoir to be used by its owner, Lloydell Water Co. (a predecessor to Highland Sewer and Water Authority) to supply water, via pumping, to the coal-mining community of Dunlo/Llanfair. Dam removal reduces liability concerns and eliminates the financial burden of maintaining the dam. The project, which resulted in a January 2005 removal, allows for habitat restoration on the South Fork Little Conemaugh River, a high-quality coldwater fishery. Details in this grant report are subject to change.
