Prompton Dam
The Prompton Dam was constructed in 1960 to reduce flood risks primarily for the communities of Prompton, Pennsylvania, Hawley, Pennsylvania and Honesdale, Pennsylvania. The 1230-foot long and 147-foot high earthen dam was built in response to severe floods on the Lackawaxen River in 1936, 1942 and 1955.
