Across the United States, more than 600 dams have been removed in the last 50 years. Many more communities, including the City of Easton, are considering removing existing dams that were once used for milling operations, but now serve no purpose.
Come and hear Richard Albert speak about the dams that didn’t get built on the Delaware River. The history of the Tocks Island Dam Project will be traced from an early 1783 anti-dam treaty, through the highly emotional environmental controversy in the 1970s, to the historic Good Faith agreement of the 1980s.
