None. First paragraph: The American Cyanamid Company (ACCo) Dam is a low head concrete spillway located on the Raritan River in Bound Brook, New Jersey. This structure is the second dam on the Raritan and is approximately 22 river miles upstream from Raritan Bay. The partially breached Fieldsville Dam located three miles downstream is the lowermost dam on the river. The Fieldsville Dam will be partially removed during 1983, under a demolition contract funded by the New Jersey Division of Fish, Game, and Wildlife. This demolition will allow free passage of anadromous fish up to the American Cyanamid Dam. It is anticipated the tailwater level at the American Cyanamid Dam will be lowered slightly as a result of the demolition work at the Fieldsville Dam.
