Rogue River Dam Removal to Start Next Week


WaterWatch announces that removal of the Savage Rapids Dam on Oregon's Rogue River will commence next week. The 39-foot irrigation diversion dam is considered the greatest fish killer on the Rogue, a river renowned for its fishing and whitewater rafting. The dam removal process takes time, but Savage Rapids should be completely removed by the end of 2009. Once this effort is complete, the lower 153 miles of the Rogue will be dam-free.
