Andover Awarded State & Federal River Restoration Grants

The Town of Andover has been awarded state and federal grants for the removal of two dams on the Shawsheen River. Andover received a $25,000 grant from the Commonwealth’s Department of Fish and Game. Atria Senior Living, Inc. was also awarded a $12,000 grant. These funds will help to match $789,000 from the U.S. Department of Interior’s Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief-Coastal Resilience Grant program via the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. The Shawsheen River is a tributary of the Merrimack River, and removal of the dams will restore passage for resident and migratory fish and improve public safety. Both dams exacerbate flooding and are in various stages of disrepair. More Information
