Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: This 7-foot tall, 230-foot long structure was built in 1935 as a swimming area on the site of a former grist mill dam. Swimming was discontinued at the site in the 1970s and maintenance has been a constant concern since that time. The Ralph Stover State Park dam is owned by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, who wishes to remove the dam, restore this federally-designated Wild & Scenic stretch of Tohickon Creek, and allow for fish passage. American Rivers, in partnership with PA DCNR and the PA Fish and Boat Commission, is helping coordinate this dam removal, which will take place in late 2007, contingent upon securing funding for the removal.
