Project to Remove San Clemente Dam Given the Green Light

Via Moldy Chum:

The $83 million project includes removal of the 106-foot dam which was built in 1921 and is 15 miles above Carmel. The dam, which was ruled seismically unsafe in the 1990s, has been out of use for years and has millions of cubic feet of silt behind it. The project also includes re-routing the Carmel River and removing the old Carmel River dam. It is expected to improve the river's natural habitat for endangered steelhead and other protected species.
