i. East Bridgewater - EEA #15515-Cotton Gin Dam Removal - The project proponent is proposing to remove the Carver Cotton Gin Dam that span the Satucket River near the intersection of Whitman Street and Plymouth Street in East Bridgewater. The privately-owned dam is deteriorating and in an unsafe condition. The dam currently blocks fish passage during most flow conditions, particularly for the anadromous river herring, which migrate from marine to freshwater environments each spring to spawn. During low flows the dam functions as a vertical barrier and during high flows water velocities in the gate are greater than river herring can typically navigate. Removing the dam would restore habitat and provide opportunity for river herring migratory runs as well as resident fish movement in the 4.4 miles of the Satucket River and its tributaries. (e.g., Black Brook) upstream of the dam to Robbins Pond.
