Analysis and Prioritization of Dam Removal on Chicopee Brook, Monson, MA for the Benefit of Eastern Brook Trout

In this research, I utilized GIS databases to identify coldwater streams and prioritize small dam removal in the Chicopee Brook watershed to enhance wild eastern brook trout populations by restoring stream connectivity, continuity, and biodiversity. I sampled the macroinvertebrate community, water quality, and assessed habitat suitably at locations upstream and downstream of the former Zero Manufacturing Company dam.
