Taylor Park Dam

Millburn, New Jersey

The Township of Millburn engaged our firm after conducting an initial feasibility study for the replacement of this municipal dam. Our efforts included evaluating the proposed solution and interfacing with NJ DEP Bureau of Dam Safety/Flood Control and NJ DEP Division of Land Use Regulations. After making modifications to the concept plan, our firm developed a hydraulics and hydrology study which was submitted and approved by the State. Following that approval, we developed final plans for the dam replacement and sought the appropriate permits. During the course of the design, a downstream wall failure resulted in an increase in our scope of work to include its replacement. Subsequently, we provided construction period services for the municipality and the dam was successfully completed in the Spring of 2014.
