Scope/Content: Abstract: The Winnicut River Dam and its attached Canadian "step weir" fish ladder were built in 1957 by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department at the head-of-tide, to create habitat for waterfowl and provide fish passage to freshwater habitat. Soon after construction, it became apparent that the design of the fish ladder was not appropriate for coastal fish species native to the Winnicut River. Partially as a consequence of the dam and its poorly performing fish ladder, populations of adromous fish (those that migrate to and from the ocean) in the Winnicut River have dwindled. Scope/Content: Date constructed: 1957. Date removed: 2009.
