Pittsburgh District delivers new fish habitats on Ohio River
A helicopter contracted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District lifts a concrete block by the Montgomery Locks and Dam in Monaca, Pennsylvania, Aug. 8, 2023. The Pittsburgh District used a helicopter to lift 29 trees bundles and concrete blocks to create a new fish habitat in a water basin on the Ohio River. The fishery will mitigate impact caused by construction planned in the coming years at three locks and dams nearby. The construction of the three new locks is part of the Upper Ohio Navigation Project, a multi-billion-dollar project that will benefit inland navigation. The district will remove the auxiliary chambers at the Montgomery, Dashields and Emsworth locks and dams, replacing them with larger navigation chambers.
