How will upstream property owners be affected?

An understandable concern from upstream property owners is that this project will “drain the pond” once the Sixth Street Dam is removed. After extensive study of the river bottom, our engineers have verified property owners from Ann Street upstream to North Park Bridge will see a minimal change in water levels. This is due to the unique geologic features of the historic bedrock rapids acting as a natural dam holding water upstream of Ann Street.


The new proposed barrier could be used to enhance rowing upstream and kayaking/canoeing downstream, and prevent non-native sea lamprey from spawning upstream.
