2008 Success

Grantee:  WaterWatch

waterwatch.org

Result: 1 dam removed

Conservation Alliance funding helped WaterWatch lead the effort to remove the Elk Creek Diverson, an obsolete dam on the iconic Rogue River in Oregon. Elk Creek is the first of four dams on the Rogue that WaterWatch plans to see removed. Once removed, the Rogue will provide better habitat for salmon and steelhead, and improved boating opportunities for whitewater enthusiasts.
