At Least 500 Dams Already Removed

"Although the precise number of dams removed from the nations rivers is unknown, it certainly is at least five hundred. The number of candidates for removal is certain to increase as the structures continue to age, and as further emphasis on river restoration stimulates more interest in removal as one of a series of management options." (Quote from the Heinz Center's publication, "Dam Removal: Science and Decision Making," May 2002, see )
