jim bielecki Posted September 22, 2009 Report Share Posted September 22, 2009 I went to the McDowell Forest Preserve on my way home today. I saw that the old "McDowell" dam was taken out but they replaced it with a new one upstream. My question is, what was the point of taking out the old one and then putting in a new one? I thought the dam was supposed to be removed. The new one is holding back a lot of debris and there is NO way for fish to migrate at all. What's the point of all our efforts when the "Man" is going to do what they want anyway. There were a lot of people working and looking forward to the removal....not the replacement! I thought our voice was heard but apparantly not. Any thoughts on this? Where did we go wrong? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
