MILL ROOF REPLACEMENT COMPLETED

The roof is on !!! The old leaking shingles were removed, new plywood sheeting was laid down, and painted steel metal panels and trim installed. All was completed during the first week of November. This will keep the mill structure and milling machinery secure for a good long time - what a relief.
Thank you to all who have generously donated.
Also, Thank You to the Wabash County Community Foundation for a grant of $4,460 for the purchase of roofing materials.

STOCKDALE MILL DAM
FISH LADDER

The Fish Ladder is in place, active, and being enjoyed by hundreds of fish.

A fish bypass was installed at the Stockdale Mill Dam this summer. The first of its kind anywhere "fishway" is located outside the existing concrete south wing-wall of the dam. [dam buttress end opposite the mill] The innovative structure is the first of its kind installed anywhere in the U.S. The Stockdale Mill Foundation is partnering with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Dept. and the Manchester University Environmental Sciences Program. The fishway includes electronic sensors to monitor fish migration up and down the Eel River. Manchester University will conduct ongoing research into fish behavior.
