August 05, 2019 05:50 AM
The removal of the Mill Street Dam begins on Monday in Pittsfield.
The city has received nearly 3 million dollars to remove the 20-foot-high, 40-foot-wide dam.
The dam is located on the west branch of the Housatonic River.
The city hopes the removal project will help protect surrounding infrastructure, eliminate a public safety hazard, and reduce flooding in the area.
