CLEARFIELD – Repairs are being done to the Raftmen’s Memorial Timber Dam in Clearfield Borough.
According to previously published GANT News articles, a large section of the dam broke off from the main structure and was carried downstream. It was discovered Sept. 11, 2016.
The borough had been working to secure materials to make the repairs to the dam, which is over 40 years old.
The dam was built to promote fishing and recreation but is not used for flood control. The dam was also a memorial to honor the lumber heritage of the region.
