    These improvements will visibly affect the Monongahela River. Removing Locks and Dam 3 will create a single pool and cause the river to rise 5’ between Braddock and Elizabeth. From Elizabeth to Charleroi, the river will drop 3.2’. Even though normal river levels will be different from Braddock to Charleroi, flooding will be no worse because of the new gated Braddock Dam.
