Sharing Knowledge - Raising Awareness - Bridging River's Advocates

Division of Ecological Restoration (Massachusetts) on-the-ground work focuses on revitalizing urban rivers and undoing the effects of more than 3000 dams and 40,000 culverts. Dams block fish and wildlife, degrade water quality, and stop the flow of water, sediment, and organic material. Undersized and inappropriately place culverts block fish and wildlife.

Dam removal began on the Elwha River in mid-September 2011. Today, Elwha Dam is gone, over fifty percent of Glines Canyon Dam has been removed, the Lake Mills and Lake Aldwell reservoirs have drained, and the Elwha River flows freely from its headwaters in the Olympic Mountains to the Strait of Juan de Fuca for the first time in 100 years.
