The restoration of Washington's White Salmon River begins on October 26, when a hole will be blasted at the base of Condit Dam. Removing the outdated 125-foot tall dam will restore the health of the river and habitat for salmon and steelhead. It will also create new recreation opportunities on this river that is already a premier whitewater destination. The conservation community, including Friends of the White Salmon, the Yakama Nation, American Rivers, American Whitewater, and others have worked for more than 20 years to restore the river.

American Rivers dubbed 2011 “The Year of the River” because our country will soon reach the significant milestone of 1000 dams removed nationwide. This is the second video in the Year of the River series - the first video explored the current Elwha River dam removal project.
