A Visual Tour of the Pequannock and Pompton Dams
Pompton Dam & Pequannock Dam, a set on Flickr.The subject of much discussion, the Pequannock and Pompton Dams have been in the news of late as the NJ Department of the Treasury considers removing them to ostensibly improve flooding conditions (something much debated).
I've said quite a bit on that topic myself, especially as a member of the Environmental, Historic District, and Flood Control Advisory Commissions in Pequannock, but instead of words today I offer photos. Specifically, 100+ photos I've taken of the Pequannock and Pompton Dams along the Pequannock River and Morris Canal in Pequannock and Wayne NJ.
These photos are offered not only for your enjoyment, but as a way to raise awareness of what we may lose (and soon) if we do not speak up, and they are offered copyright free as a resource to others who may want to write about the subject of dam removal or simply have a nice desktop wallpaper.
