Dragon Springs Dam Development Hearing, Port Jervis, NY


Delaware Riverkeeper Network is asking for the public to come out to lend their voices to the concern of dam development within Basher Kill and Neversink River!

Dragon Buddhist Inc is proposing to dam a headwater stream, destroy headwater wetlands, create acres of impervious cover and runoff, that would adversely impact the Basher Kill and the Neversink River. This development has already damaged the aesthetics and quality of the Basher Kill and the Neversink River, impacting fish, mussels and other aquatic life that are both ecologically and recreationally important to the region.  The Basher Kill and Neversink River are important recreational resources supporting highly valued swimming and fishing opportunities for both residents and visitors.

Those who are uncomfortable with speaking up are still encouraged to show support, and stickers will be provided so one can show their support with their presence.
