Boardman River Dam Removal: Phase 1-Brown Bridge Dam (LM-2-11)

The overall proposed project involves removing three dams and modifying a fourth which are barriers to fish and aquatic species passage. When implemented, there will be a resultant improvement in in-stream and river corridor habitat for fish and wildlife, restoration of natural woody debris recruitment and transport regimes, and temperature regimes negatively affected by the impoundments behind the dams. The approach going forward is technical in nature, relying on a wide variety of disciplines and involves holistic, watershed-scale restoration of natural stream and corridor function and configuration.
