Hamilton Township took ownership of the dam in 1978. The County of Atlantic became a part-owner several years later in order to directly assist Hamilton Township financially.

The project includes improvements to the dam’s powerhouse, along with the overall rehabilitation of the aging dam.

Atlantic County and Hamilton Township are working with the Department of NJ Dam Safety, NJDEP, the State Historic Preservation Office, NJ Pinelands Commission, and others to assist with moving this project to ultimate completion.
