The town of Darien will move forward with a project this fall to rebuild the Upper Gorham Pond dam, dredge thousands of cubic yards of road sand, and install a fish ladder to help herring migrate more easily, officials said.

The primary focus of the project will be the restoration of the aging dam, including equipping it with weir boards to help manage the flow of the Goodwives River during times of peak flow and will take about eight weeks to complete this fall, according to John Lundeen, president of the Friends of Gorham Pond.
