The Future of Washington's Elwha River

August 24, 2006 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Historically, the Elwha hosted some of the largest Chinook salmon in the country, but two dams now block salmon and steelhead from accessing most of the river. Fortunately, the National Park Service is planning on removing both dams. The removal project is slated to begin as soon as 2008.” Luca Adelphio talks about the Elwha and about the many challenges that accompany the removal of dams from once-pristine rivers on the T.U. blog.
