Exelon Power dedicates fish passageway at Black Rock Dam

Passageway part of migratory fish restoration effort in the Schuylkill River


PHOENIXVILLE, Pennsylvania - Exelon Power today dedicated its new fish passageway at the Schuylkill River's Black Rock Dam, which enables American shad and other migratory fish to travel feely northward past the dam.

"Migratory fish, such as the American shad, are a vital part of Pennsylvania's natural, cultural and economic heritage," said Doyle Beneby, president of Exelon Power. "We're pleased to join in the effort to help preserve and restore that heritage."

The project is the result of cooperation between Exelon Power and Chester County. Officials from the county joined executives from Exelon in the dedication ceremony.
