Hughesville Dam

NewThe United States Fish and Wildlife Service has developed this Environmental Assessment for the Hughesville Dam Removal. The Hughesville Dam is on the Musconetcong River in New Jersey. The dam is a major barrier that restricts diadromous fish from reaching their historic spawning and nursery areas. Of the three action alternatives, full dam removal will meet all of the project goals of restoring fish passage, improving an impaired aquatic ecosystem, protecting public safety, and reducing cost and liability for the dam owner.
