The applicant, East Goshen Township, proposes to breach the existing Milltown Dam and convert the approximate 10-acre reservoir to enhanced stream, pond, and wetlands within a park setting with public parking. The location for the proposed work is approximately 0.1 mile north of the intersection of West Chester Pike (State Route 03) and Reservoir Road, in East Goshen Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The applicant’s stated purposes for the project are to modify the Milltown Dam and reclassify the structure as a low hazard dam to address dam safety concerns and replace the lost public recreational functions and values of an open water reservoir through the creation of new recreational and environmental enhancements in the former impoundment area. More details are available in the "Public Notice" document. Public comments are requested by July 7, 2021.
