Elwha River - The largest dam removal in US history

Elwha River - The largest dam removal in US history | Dam Removeal | Scoop.it
For nearly 100 years, the Elwha and Glines Canyon Dams have disrupted natural processes, trapping sediment in the reservoirs and blocking fish migrations, which changed the ecology of the river downstream of the dams.

 

This article is talking about how having the dam is changeing the down stream ecology. Because the dam is disrupting the natrual process trapping sediment rock in the reservoirs and making so that fish can't migrate. Which has changed the ecology of having downstream dams.

This was interesting to me because I the dam may be effecting the ecology and migration of fish, but if the dam is removed how would the change effect the ecology and migration?

This was Interesting to me because dams aren't usually removed unless there's a pressing problem. All dams disrupt natural processes, sediments, etc, but this dam's affects must have been really serious in order to determine that it had to be taken down...

I like how the US is deciding to remove this large of a dam for environmental reasons. It is helping the migration of fish, and in the long run be much better for the environment.
