Dam Removals

My article on dam removals was just published by the fine folks at The Traveler's Notebook. It is titled Rivers Set Free: 5 Dam Removal Projects to Visit in 2008.

And, just as a comparison between the states where the majority of our family lives:

My home state of Iowa has 83 dams that have been classified as high hazard, meaning they pose a serious threat to human life if they should fail. Of those high hazard dams, 9 have been identified as structurally deficient or unsafe.

Texas has 101 high hazard dams that are structurally deficient or unsafe.

Nevada has 4.

Oregon has 4.

Washington has 15.
