Marcy Dam no longer provides this scenic vista. The pond has been greatly reduced, and it consists of a number of small streams running through a wide field of mud and debris. Eventually, vegatation such as tag alder will reclaim the mudflats and beaver may even move back to the region to establish a colony and revive the pond.

Dams provide opportunities for power, navigation, fish barriers, and often serve as bridges for snowmobilers, hikers, bikers and skiers.
