Dam Removal


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Marmot Dam on the Sandy River near Mount Hood will be gone soon. It is cheaper to remove the dam than maintain it. Removing the dam will unleash tons sediment and a host of uncertainties. No one knows exactly what effect the removal of a dam this size will have on the river.

First Broadcast: 2005
Producer: Jim Newman
