Scope/Content: Abstract: The Palmerton dam was considered orphaned, which placed its maintenance and safety responsibilities with the state. The dam's original purpose was industrial water supply. It was removed as part of an effort to restore migratory fish runs to the Lehigh River and improve fish habitat for resident species. The project will also remove a safety hazard from the Lehigh River Water Trail. Details in this grant report are subject to change. Scope/Content: Author affiliation: American Rivers
