Stream restoration underway with Roaring River Dam removal

An excavator loads a dump truck with concrete, rock and soil from Roaring River Dam in Jackson County, Tennessee Aug. 1, 2017. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is removing the dam, built in 1976 by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District. The dam in Jackson County, Tennessee was at risk of failure and the Corps of Engineers determined that it would be better to remove the dam as it was no longer needed as a fish barrier on the Cumberland River tributary. Partners in the joint effort to remove the dam include TWRA, Corps of Engineers, The Nature Conservancy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, and Southern Aquatic Resources Partnership.
