One of the main contributors to declining herring population in Massachusetts is the large number of dams along rivers. The focus of this project is fish passage design for the Center Falls Dam on the Aberjona River in downtown Winchester. Through the use of hydrologic, hydraulic, and structural analyses the dam was assessed. A fish passage was then designed for a denil passage along with alternative recommended designs for a steeppass fishway to provide a way for river herring to properly spawn upstream of the dam.
