The Boardman Valley Preservation Society

Advocates for the scenic Boardman River as well as our hydroelectric dams, and beautiful ponds. Along with you, we endeavor to preserve and restore their economic, historic, and social value.

The Cost to remove the dams is currently estimated to run as high as $28,000,000.00

The estimated cost to repair and to generate electricity from these same dams $2,320,000
