Engineering Design, Permitting, Construction Oversight, and Program Management for Dam Removal

Cedar Grove DamEHS Support has been engaged by The Nature Conservancy’s New Jersey Chapter to provide engineering design, permitting, construction oversight, and program management services for the removal of the Cedar Grove Dam on the Pequest River in Warren County (White Township), New Jersey. The Cedar Grove Dam removal and restoration project is one of four dam removal projects being implemented by The Nature Conservancy to increase the connectivity of aquatic habitats for diadromous fishes within the Pequest River, which is a priority tributary for diadromous fish passage within the Delaware River Basin.

Dam removal efforts within the Delaware River Basin are part of a broader nation-wide effort to remove aging and obsolete dam structures and restore the connectivity of aquatic habitats to enhance fish passage and other ecological and societal functions within riverine systems. EHS Support seeks to be at the forefront of these efforts by providing high quality, cost-effective engineering and consulting solutions for dam removal and restoration projects.
