Removal of Marcy Dam By NYSDEC

The Student Conservation Association’s (SCA) crew have been hard at work removing Marcy Dam in the High Peaks Wilderness Area. After Hurricane Irene compromised the dam in 2011, DEC elected to remove the structure to restore the stream to its natural state. Since the dam is located in a wilderness area and motorized vehicles are not allowed, it poses some difficulties for the crew. Check out how they rise to meet the challenge!
