River Headwaters Restoration & Sawmill Dam Removal Services

Historically, the Eel River flowed uninterrupted to the Atlantic, supporting fish, wildlife, and wetland communities. Beginning in the early 1800s, the Eel River watershed (and others in Massachusetts with similar characteristics) were severely compromised when they were converted to cranberry bogs, which involved removing trees, channeling streams, and building berms and dams to control water.

Restoring this 60-acre site (40 of which is cranberry bog) to pre-agriculture hydrology involved first conducting a preliminary engineering investigation and preparing the project design. Together with our project partners, we managed construction, which involved removing an old dam and nearby culverts; creating 8,000 feet of new stream channel; in-channel habitat improvement; installing two fish and wildlife-friendly culverts; and planting 17,000 Atlantic white cedar trees.
