Date: 2000
Abstract: This guide is meant to offer citizens a blueprint for how to advocate for dam removal as a river restoration tool. Despite the damage that many dams to to rivers, we recognize that dams can procide and some continue to provide important benefits to humans. We do not suggest that all dams be removed. But for many the time has come to remove the remnants of an earlier time and allow the river to heal. Decisions about which dams are candidates for removal should be based on many factors including economic, societal, cultural and environmental issues. The goal of this guide is to aid that decision-making process. We hope you find the information presented in a user-friendly and understandable format.
