Splash damming to transport logs was common on PA streams around the mid to late 1800s.
This video isn't from PA, but it shows a splash dam and log drive in operation.
You can see the remains of old splash dams in many places in the forests of PA.
The narrator describes how streams were altered to prepare for the log drive. You can still see in many places in PA the impacts of that on the streams.
