Dam Removal Project Delayed Until Early Fall
6 September 2016
CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - The removal of a dam along the West Fork
River near Clarksburg has been delayed.
The Exponent Telegram reports that the project has been
delayed until late September or early October.
Field supervisor for U.S. Fish and Wildlife John Schmidt says a
consulting firm is currently assessing the condition of a bridge
that crosses the river near the Two Lick Dam.
The agency has already removed the Highland and West Milford dams
and will work with the West Virginia Division of Highways to
remove the third dam. Once the dam is removed, the agency will
begin collecting and relocating stranded mussels in the river.
