A small dam goes under a footbridge at Baintertown Dam River Preserve County Park.

GOSHEN — A study of two low-head dams east of New Paris may recommend that they be removed or modified.

The Elkhart County Parks Department has received a grant to conduct a feasibility study on the Bainter Town and Benton dams in the Elkhart River. Both are located in River Preserve County Park, the site of a 19th century canal and power system handed to the county 50 years ago.
