Next Steps and Possible Alternatives

How we got to this point, and why this is the next best step

  • Numerous smaller studies, but nothing has looked at the watershed as a whole

  • Will look at repair, replacement, removal, and relocation

  •  Look at the economic benefit/cost of the dams

  • Will provide information to help make decisions if additional dams fail in the future

Anticipated Alternatives

  • Dam Removals

  • Dam Replacements

  • Channel and Floodplain Improvements

  • Dam Relocations

  • Upland watershed treatments to reduce runoff (e.g. land cover, multiple smaller storage structures, etc.)
