The removal of the Robert Street Dam, one of the most significant obstructions to migratory fish passage on the main stem of the Raritan River, was successfully completed in August 2012. This project constitutes the most significant dam removal thus far in the Raritan River watershed and has advanced several of the river restoration goals set forth by the Sustainable Raritan River Initiative. This work is the second of three planned dam removals that will ultimately re-open nine miles of historically significant spawning grounds for American shad and other migratory fish on the Raritan River and the lower 1.5 miles of the Millstone River (in addition to numerous tributaries). This fish passage restoration initiative is a ground-breaking example of a cooperative public-private partnership that was forged between Carl Alderson of NOAA, Dave Bean of NJDEP, and John Jengo of MWH on behalf of the Kinder Morgan, Inc., who is funding the project.
