Description

Despite more than a decade of experience with dam removals for ecological and social benefits, the practice of stream barrier removal continues to emerge. This paper focuses on learning experiences gained from selected dam removal projects in Western Pennsylvania, distilling take-home messages about how project selection, pre-planning, site investigations, and adaptabililty during construction can help to maximize project outcomes, increase cost-effectiveness, and anticipate and minimize construction difficulties.
