p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Demolition Of A Dam


Glines Canyon Dam in Olympic National Park, Washington, undergoing first phases of demoliton in September, 2011. A year later, the 210' tall dam is now down to 70' and Lake Mills behind the dam is gone. Total restoration of the Elwha River will be completed by Spring, 2013, 1-1/2 years ahead of schedule, and salmon will be able to fully return to the watershed after almost 100 years.

More information at Olympic National Park's website: http://www.nps.gov/olym/naturescience/elwha-ecosystem-restoration.htm.

Thanks for looking.

Bob

Fascinating, Bob. Great to see a dam go down. How low is the lake now?

Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks very much for your most kind and welcome comments.

Lake Mills is gone and the Elwha River is down to its base channel and only 70' more of the dam needs to be removed for a free flowing stream down the canyon, which will be done by early Spring, 2013. Indeed, the restoration process has been fascinating to observe and even see spawning salmon up the river just below Glines Dam (the lower Elwha Dam was totally removed this past Spring.
