The Hudson River – Black River Regulating District and its consultant engineering firm for this project, Kleinschmidt, are completing an evaluation of the Hawkinsville Dam. This evaluation will examine and compare two alternatives proposed to bring the dam into compliance with state dam safety regulations. The evaluation will explore both remediation/repair and removal of the dam and spillway. To further the objectives of the evaluation, a natural resources/wetland assessment, field work, and data gathering will need to occur. Kleinschmidt’s team of engineers will be conducting topographic, bathymetric, and wetland surveys beginning the week of November 11.
