West Street Dam Rehabilitation Update

May 2023 Update : The contractor has installed the new stream crossing and final restoration activities are underway.

Construction kicked off at the West Street Dam project site! The West Street Dam is a significant hazard earth embankment dam in need of repair. EP worked with the Town of Foxborough to design and permit the West Street Dam Rehabilitation project. The project plans will remove the existing spillway and replace the existing corrugated metal pipe culvert with one that conforms to the Massachusetts Stream Crossing Standards and expands the function of the naturally occurring riverine systems in the area. Other project improvements include dam stabilization, road widening, water main replacement work, and wetland replication. The contractor broke ground in September 2022 and final restoration activities are anticipated in the Spring of 2023.
