Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The Sharrer's Mill dam was built to power a grist mill. It was no longer used for its original purpose and the owners wished to restore the natural ecosystem on Conewago Creek. The dam was removed in February 2006 and built upon the June 2004 removal of the Detter's Mill dam downstream on Conewago Creek, which opened 10 miles for fish passage in York County. The dam owners were very appreciate of the support of American River's DEP Growing Greener award and the partnership of agencies and non- profits who assisted them in removing their dam and restoring a beautiful creek on their property. The details in this grant report are subject to change.
