Hibernia Brook Restoration Project Lake Hudsonia Dam Removal

The Township is proposing to remove of a portion of the Lake Hudsonia dam and restore the area to pre-dam conditions.   A portion of Lake Hudsonia Dam will be removed in an engineered manner and restore the upstream area with plantings to reconnect portions of Hibernia Brook in accordance with State regulations. The design of the dam removal will leave a storage area upstream to hold water for a limited duration for larger storms so the stream flow after the dam removal will be no more than current conditions. This design and construction process and sequence has been developed to ensure sedimentation does not flow from the Lake Hudsonia site to Lake Telemark.  Currently, the project is scheduled for the spring of 2017.  Additional documentation is available below.
