Boardman Dam Removal
Result: 1 dam removed
We funded Conservation Resource Alliance’s Boardman River Dams Project to remove three dams and restore 15 river miles resulting in a free flowing and reborn Boardman River, benefiting the fishery, the community and the efforts of other communities to remove similar dams. CRA reports that they have successfully removed Brown Bridge Dam, the first of the three dams slated for removal. Following the removal, the group restored 2.5 river miles and 12.2 acres of previously inundated floodplain. CRA now turns its attention to removing Boardman and Sabin dams.
