Deep River Watershed Projects

Deep River Dam (Lake Station)

The removal or modification of the Deep River Dam, located in Lake Station near Liverpool Road, has been identified as a high priority restoration action in the watershed management plan. Flatland Resources, LLC was contracted by NIRPC to complete an engineering feasibility study to evaluate the dams removal or modification and associated ecological and social impacts. The recommended action is to modify the failing dam by installing a constructed riffle which would provide fish passage and increase in-stream habitat diversity; improve recreational access and safety; maintain the existing community identity; and be a potential economic driver.
