Dru Germanoski, Dr. Ervin R. Van Artsdalen Professor Geology, was interviewed by WFMZ for its June 4 report on the improving environmental conditions in the Bushkill Creek as work continues on dam removals in the waterway.

Wildlands Conservancy, the lead organization behind the project, oversaw the removal of an Easton-owned dam on Bushkill Drive on June 4, the second of three dams to be taken down to allow the restoration of valuable freshwater mussels in the creek and improve and enhance other habitat.

Last July, a Lafayette-owned dam near the Karl Stirner Arts Trail was removed, the first and most critical of a series of dams upstream of the confluence of the Bushkill and the Delaware.

Lafayette has been a key partner in the project for many years, bringing interdisciplinary teams of faculty and students who have assisted Wildlands Conservancy in monitoring the creek.
