NRWA Supports the Removal of the Flock Process Dam
Hotel Zero Degrees owner, Bill Burnham, whose restaurant overlooks the falling water of the dam, has argued against removal of the dam. NRWA believes that the dam should be removed in order to begin to restore the river to its natural state. Dam removal would increase anadromous fish passage upstream, increase flooding resilience, and eliminate the risks of dam failure. See our letter to the editor in the Norwalk Hour or in the Connecticut Plus. For more information on the history of dams on the Norwalk River, click here.
