September 21, 2017 Important Notice:
Restoration Systems has begun operating the Milburnie Dam to drain the six-mile Neuse River impoundment behind the dam. This will be over a month long process and no actual dam removal will occur for some time. However, the naturalization of the Neuse River has begun and water levels will be noticeably lower upstream of the dam. We will post photos of the process from time to time in the Milburnie Dam photo album on this page.
We urge the public to stay away from the dam powerhouse and do not disturb the workers operating the facility. It is private property.
