Springville (Scoby) Dam
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Buffalo District hosted a public information meeting at Concord Town Hall Auditorium, Springville, NY, to discuss the Springville (Scoby) Dam fish passage project study, proposed alternatives, and study schedule, March 5, 2013. The purpose of this Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration Section 506 study at the dam is to evaluate an array of measures which will provide fish passage above the dam to the upstream reaches of Cattaraugus Creek and its tributaries while at the same time prohibiting upstream migration of sea lampreys. The Springville Dam currently blocks all upstream movement of fish to the upper reaches of Cattaraugus Creek and its tributaries.
