1 dam removed

Our support of American Whitewater’s Dillsboro Dam Removal Project lead to a comprehensive settlement agreement with Duke Energy calling for the removal of the Dillsboro Dam and subsequent watershed enhancements including enhanced flow releases, public river access areas, parks, trails and land conservation. After nearly a decade of negotiations, the Dillsboro Dam on the Tuckasegee River in North Carolina has finally come down, allowing this river to flow freely for the first time in more than 100 years.
