2023 Projects

In FY23, NFHAP and FWS supported four conservation projects for brook trout. These include a dam removal opening 25 miles, a project to advance steps to treat AMD in a Pennsylvania watershed, a culvert replacement to open 14 miles of stream, and a project to complete post-construction maintenance and riparian plantings on a stream in New York. These were supported with $150,037 in FWS funds and $2,546,902 in partner funds.

Quinapoxet Dam Removal, West Boylston, MA

Removal of the Quinapoxet Dam will provide upstream fish access to high-quality coldwater habitat, restore river processes for downstream benefits (e.g., sediment and organic matter transport), and ensure genetic health for Brook Trout and Landlocked Salmon. The project will also add an ADA compliant path/platform on the river bank, and install signage. Awardee: Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA)
