Dam Removal Model Predictions

For over a decade, Stillwater Sciences has been actively involved in advancing the science behind dam removal as a restoration approach, including contributions at national workshops on dam removal. We use models and site-specific field data to provide our clients with a comprehensive understanding of the short-term and long-term physical and biological impacts of dam removal at varying spatial scales.  This information is then used to determine likely impacts on valued native flora and fauna and the potential for downstream flood risk, and so allow stakeholders to understand the competing issues and benefits of dam removal. Our goal in these analyses is to provide the most cost-effective and ecologically-sound method for removing dams.

We enjoyed this NOAA Fisheries article called “Predicting River Response to Dam Removal: What Happens Next?” which you can read here.
