Low Dam Removal

To follow up on Wednesday's conversation concerning low dam removal in the area... the following are two sets of pictures from Greg Brumtit with Five Rivers MetroParks.

These two shots (above) are on Clear Creek in Golden, CO…this stream is very similar (a bit smaller than the Mad) in flow and structure as the Mad River. Golden estimated several years ago a $2-2.5 million annual economic impact from this park.

These two are taken at the Salida, Co park on the Arkansas river…flow when these were taken was 3000 CFS…peak snowmelt flow….665 is a really good example of a classic “U” grade control. The Salida project was riverfront restoration and recreation project…
