The Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is about to start rebuilding the small “sluiceway” dam in Hemlock Gorge by the corner of Ellis St and the Rt 9 exit.  A crew there this afternoon is scoping things out.  They plan to block off that whole area with a fence in the coming days for the duration of construction

The dam in question is in poor shape and has been crumbling and leaking for a while now.

The plan is to drop a portable dam a short distance upstream and divert most of the water over the larger horseshoe dam by the Rt 9 exit during the construction.  The whole project won’t be completed until mid or end of July.
