Summary

This feature represents a dam that was removed. See the DRIP database (https://www.sciencebase.gov/drip/) for additional information about the removal.

Purpose

The United States is likely to see a continuation of the recent dam removal trend. An emerging need is to provide relevant scientific information about the physical, biological, and ecological responses of rivers and reservoirs to dam removal. Retaining specific details about removed dams will provide valuable information to those researching and making decisions on future dam removals.
