Purpose

The purpose of this dataset is to provide a publicly available database of dam removal literature and associated meta-data, such as the character of removed dams, types of monitoring designs employed, and response metrics measured. The creation of this meta-knowledge database provides managers, stakeholders, and the public with the information necessary to help make informed decisions about dam decommissioning.
