Scope/Content: Abstract: This dam was originally 17 feet tall when constructed, but had been severely damaged in several high water events and stood at roughly 4 feet at the outset of this project. The dam was exacerbating upstream flooding and was causing degradation and erosion of the streambanks through the impounded reach and immediately below the dam. The owner of the dam, Graceland Cemetery and Garden Chapel Mausoleum, provided information gathered by biologists from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, who performed an assessment of the riparian property in 2001 as part of the Lawrence County Natural Heritage Inventory. The dam was removed in September of 2006 and the site was planted with native plants in late October/early November of 2006. The project site will enter its first growing season in spring 2007. Details in this grant report are subject to change. Scope/Content: Author affiliation: American Rivers Scope/Content: Date removed: 2006.
