Scope/Content: Abstract: The Kratz and Rosman dams were built in the early 1900s for water power. It is unclear what the Schwenksville dam was built for, but it was abandoned after 1920. None of the three dams currently serve a purpose and constitute public safety hazards. The Kratz dam has exacerbated localized flooding. The removal of all three dams will further the goals of fish passage through this tributary to the Schuylkill and will restore free-flowing conditions to this section of Perkiomen Creek. The removal of these dams is expected to occur in early 2007 and will compliment the earlier removals of the Collegeville and Goodrich dams downstream. Details in this grant report are subject to change. Scope/Content: Author affiliation: American Rivers
