Golden Lotus is raising funds for this conservation project which includes dam removal and draining of the pond behind it. This expensive project also includes the removal of the hydro-powered electric generating equipment. The draw-down must be accomplished in a manner that limits and controls silt release downstream, and a quantity of sand will have to be removed at the dam site. Not only is it costly, but it is also a delicate process to prevent fish kills from excessive silt discharge.

There are also plans for the creation of a “hemi-marsh” to support the ecosystem that has developed for the past hundred years. It is home and a source of food for a variety of protected plant and animal species, including nesting and breeding grounds for Trumpeter Swans and Bald Eagles.
