Fish Ladder Public Meeting

  • LBWP Headquarters 85 Washington Ave Milltown, NJ, 08850 United States (map)

Public Meeting to report on the Results of the Fish Ladder Feasibility Study in the Lawrence Brook and Membership Meeting, Tuesday, August 18th, 7PM, Milltown Senior

Please note start time.  We have been studying the feasibility of installing fish ladders in the Lawrence Brook around two dams in New Brunswick to allow Herring, Shad and Eels to swim from the ocean as far as the dam at Milltown.  If this can be done, it will then support spawning of those fish in the river and for eels to live in our river before they return to the ocean to spawn.  This is very important because of the loss of habitat and the severe reduction in the numbers of these fish in recent years.  Further details in the attachment sent with previous mailing.  Come and hear about the results of the study.
