Milburnie Dam Removal Project Summary

Restoration Systems restored 6.2 miles of the Neuse River in 2017 by removing the Milburnie Dam. The dam was built in 1901 and was preceded by other dams at the location since 1760. The project was permitted as a Mitigation Bank, the first-approved bank nationwide using dam removal as a restoration method.
