River Description

Very, very edgy section that travels through industrial sections reminiscent of the Deerhunter. A few nasty dams accompany this industrial zone as the river travels through Coatesville and Modena.

There is an exciting Class III broken out dam at the end at Strausburg Rd.

There will be a one day conference on January 31st in eastern Pennsylvania that will address dam removal and rehabilitation in the state and region. It is likely that this very affordable conference would be helpful to paddlers interested in working on dam removal projects in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Registration for the conference is due by January 23rd.
