Spoonville Dam Demolition Project Begins

The removal of the Spoonville Dam will bring fish back to the lower Farmington River and improve safety.

A small crowd gathered on the bank of the Farmington River in East Granby on Monday morning to celebrate the start of a project to remove the Spoonville Dam.

Residents and town officials raised their glasses of sparkling cider to a toast made by Farmington River Watershed Association Executive Director Eileen Fielding before crews began demolition of the 128-foot concrete dam.

For more information on the Spoonville Dam removal project, check out the July 6 story on Simsbury Patch.
