The Division of Ecological Restoration (DER) is seeking applications from Massachusetts municipalities for dam removal preliminary design studies. These studies, funded and managed by DER, provide the agency with critical information for future ecological restoration planning and climate adaptation. Likewise, the studies help landowners and partners assess risks and opportunities during early planning phases of potential aquatic habitat restoration projects.
