Dam Removal Update

The removal of the Sheraton and LeFever Dams is complete, begun on July 30, 2013 and ending roughly August 20, 2013. This section of river is no longer closed to the general public. For the first time in over a century, the river is looking like its old self!

The Removal

On Tuesday, July 30, RiverWorks made the first cuts in the Sheraton Dam. The dam was essentially removed by August 9, though cleanup continues. On August 13, the upstream LeFever Dam got its first cuts; as of August 15, this dam is also mostly gone, and the river is beginning to run free!
