The Wyoming Dam on the Connecticut River was a remnant of an old dam. Although the dam had breached years ago, there was still dangerous rebar, timber, and concrete left in the river, degrading paddling access. The Connecticut River Conservancy, with partners including the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation led efforts to remove the debris from the water and restore the river for recreational use.
