Removing Deadbeat Dams

dam_mainWith support of Patagonia, Save The Colorado was proud to support the film tour for “DamNation” in cities throughout the Southwest U.S. In addition, we are always on the lookout for dam removal projects on the Colorado River and its tributaries in the 7-state region and Mexico. Dam removal is one of the most exciting new developments in river conservation in the U.S. and abroad. Removing dams is a central feature of restoring river health and the natural functioning of aquatic environments. Dams that are no longer useful, or that are terribly environmentally damaging, are candidates for removal.  Small or large, removing a dam can have an amazing effect on river health as well as provide exciting opportunities for communities and people to rally around. If you know of a Deadbeat Dam that needs to be removed, please contact us!
