Dam Removal on Turkey Creek Will Help Vermilion Darter Habitat

November 14, 2013

A crew from Action Environmental from Hanceville, Alabama began the process of removing a nearly 100 year old dam from a stretch of Turkey Creek this week.

The project is a joint venture  by the Freshwater Land Trust and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  Full restoration of the the creek area should be completed by spring 2014. The project will give the endangered Vermilion Darter more habitat. Workers use a hydraulic breaker to chisel away at the dam.
