While working on a story about dams I came across the video below—perhaps the most significant dam removal in our region.
This is footage from the Condit Dam removal, which was blown out of Washington's White Salmon River back in Oct. of 2011. Old footage, but worth a revisit. Wait for the 30-second mark.
Other noteworthy dam removals in the Pacific Northwest:
Powerdale Dam on the Hood River (Ore.), 2010
Elwah Dams (2 of 'em) on the Elwah River (Wash.), 2011
Klamath River Dams on the Klamath River (Calif.), 2020 ????
