Mon Maq Dam meeting planned for May 18

     Jones County Conservation will be hosting a public meeting Thursday, May 18, to share information on the Maquoketa River Water Trail Mon Maq Dam Project. The meeting will take place at the Central Park Nature Center at 6:30 p.m. The Jones County portion of the Maquoketa River and associated water trail is an exceptional resource that provides a diversity of outdoor recreation opportunities.

     Over the past 10 years, stakeholders have reviewed several modification and removal options for the Mon Maq Dam. These options will be presented in the context of the county’s ability to fund the project while considering river ecology and recreational interests along with the dam’s eligibility for the National Register of Historic Places.

     For more information, call 563-487-3541, ext. 2.
