Charles River Watershed Association: Studying the Watertown Dam
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

http://downloads.newtonfreelibrary.net/programs/EK%20images/11_2017/wx11_09_Program_CRWA.jpg

Elisabeth Cianciola, Aquatic Scientist for the Charles River Watershed Association, will give a talk that will:

Describe the potential benefits and challenges associated with dam removal projects

Outline the process that dam owners and river managers use to determine the fate of a dam 

The Watertown Dam (where California and Galen Streets meet) was selected as a priority project by the Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game’s Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) in 2016. A feasibility study that would help the project team determine whether or not dam removal is appropriate for this site is currently being planned. Along the Charles River, dam removal can be a very attractive course of action in cases where they are no longer actively used because it creates a stable and resilient ecosystem that better serves wildlife and the people who live around and use the river. The program is cosponsored by the Newton Conservators.
