Crews will start a project soon to remove a dam on the Appomattox River, and state officials it will benefit native fish. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says removal of the Harvell Dam in the Petersburg area will reopen 127 miles of upstream habitat for migratory fish. The list includes American and hickory shad, the American eel, and river herring.
