Dam Removals to Reconnect Brook Trout Habitat on an Unnamed Tributary to Frankstown Branch, Hollidaysburg PA

Kladder Dam was removed in September 2014 and the tributary through the former impoundment was restored to an appropriate gradient to match the watershed. Stream restoration materials included native soil and rock, clay from the dam’s core, sediment from behind the dam, and Large Wood Debris, all originating on the site. In addition, a riparian corridor was planted in the former impoundment, and several rock jack-dams and brick lining in about 100 feet of the stream channel above the former impoundment were removed by hand.
