Traphole Brook Restoration Nearing Completion

GBTU in partnership with MassDER, NepRWA, local towns, and other partners are involved with the dam removal and brook restoration of Traphole Brook in Norwood, MA.


From the MA Division of Ecological Restoration- "Traphole Brook is a Coldwater Fishery Resource that joins the Neponset River in Norwood. Naturally-reproducing eastern brook trout and brown trout have been documented in the brook by MassWildlife. The Traphole Brook Restoration involves removal of a small, Town-owned masonry dam from the brook within William Pezwick Park. This project will increase the storm resiliency of an important town road at the head of the impoundment."
