The biggest dam removal project in U.S. history is about to begin in Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. Taking out the Elwha and the Glines Canyon dams on the Elwha river particularly excites marine scientists. They’ll be able to study the affects of restoring a free-flowing river on salmon and other fish species. Earthfix reporter Ashley Ahearn is producing a three-part series of stories and she’ll give us a preview and a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what it’s been like getting to know the Elwha river.
