The PA Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) decided in October 2015 to schedule a partial breach of Broomall’s Dam to resolve the safety issues of a high-hazard dam in disrepair. While the partial breach had been scheduled for Fall 2016, the start date has been moved back to April 30th, with the construction taking 60 days.
This is planned as a temporary dam removal until the proposed new dam is built. See the Friends of Glen Providence Park website for details including safety, public notice, and 3rd Street access.
The PADEP has scheduled a public meeting to address questions about this dam breach – for Wednesday, February 22 at 6:00 in the Parlor Room of Borough Hall. Check out the FGPP website or Facebook page for more information about this meeting.
The Friends of Glen Providence Park continues to support dam removal, stream restoration and a local discussion of an environmentally-sensitive bridge between Media Borough and Upper Providence.
