Willow Grove Dam

Due to a breach in Iona Lake in Gloucester County, Willow Grove Dam has a partial breach. More water is expected from Gloucester County which will worsen the situation. Residents downstream of the lake, and in low lying areas, should continually monitor conditions in their area, especially those along the Maurice River.
