Lymans Falls, Bloomfield (2022)

Lyman Falls was the remnant of a dam on the mainstem of the Connecticut River. The once large dam that spanned the river had been reduced to debris left in the river, creating a safety hazard. The removal project, led by the Connecticut River Conservancy, cleaned up concrete, timber and rebar in the river to improve paddler safety.
