Wildlands was honored to be a part of the Hoosier Dam Removal project, which successfully removed a reinforced concrete dam that measured 235 feet long by 25 feet tall. As a result, the project reconnects designated critical habitat for the Cape Fear Shiner (a federally listed endangered species) and other species of concern on the Rocky River and Bear Creek within the Cape Fear River basin.
The dam removal project was completed courtesy of a NFWF grant. The project team included Unique Places, LLC, Wildlands Engineering, Schnabel Engineering, and New South Associates. Wildlands was responsible for the permitting, design, and construction oversight.
