The largest dam removal worldwide was the Elwha river restoration project, where the Glines Canyon dam (64m height) and the Elwha dam (33m height) were dismantled during a five year period (2009-2014). This success story of dam removal was made into a movie “Return of the River“ by John Gussman & Jessica Plumb, putting on scene the group of people who attempted the impossible: to change the public opinion of a town and eventually of the US nation to bring a dam down.
THE ultimate dam removal movie DAMNATION brings overwhelming pictures from Elwha dam removal and other background stories of the US dam removal movement. Watch that movie and afterwards you will see a river with different eyes!!
