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

GROUNDBREAKING is was held on, August 14, 3027.

A fish bypass was installed at the Stockdale Mill Dam this summer. The "fishway" was located outside the existing concrete south wing-wall of the dam. [dam buttress end opposite the mill] The innovative structure will be 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 will include electronic sensors to monitor fish migration up and down the Eel River. Manchester University will conduct ongoing research into fish behavior.
