On September 21, 2020, the New Hampshire Dam Bureau approved the Marston-Finn Conservation Dam to begin holding water, and on September 25, the George Cairns and Sons crew took the momentous step of removing the sandbags comprising the coffer dam. Ten years in the making, water was once again able to re-establish the wildlife haven of Moeckel Pond. With the help of some much needed rain the pond quickly began to fill and by October 23 water was flowing over the dam. Dozens of ducks returned within days to enjoy the new pond.
