Coon Rapid Dam Grand Opening

coon_rapids.jpgLast Fall, Three Rivers celebrated completion of the Coon Rapids Dam Rehabilitation Project! The State funded project included improvements to the dam that will allow it to serve as a more effective barrier against the spread of invasive aquatic species to northern Minnesota waters.

Our community celebration included free activities and food, as well as a ceremony to commemorate completion of the project and to thank all of Three Rivers' partners in the joint project. In addition to our many state and local partners, Congressman Erik Paulsen shared a few remarks during the program.
