Sorry to read about this @Tom Kellie.   As I have said before, I despise dams with a passion!

My entire childhood was spent around the former Elwha River Dam on Washington's Olympic Peninsula.

 

Happily...

What a nice place to grow up @Tom Kellie.

 

I have been watching the progress of the Elwha Dam removal with great interest for the past several years.  It's great that it has been removed.  Almost immediately, new sandbars formed at the mouth of the river that enhanced habitat for fish, shorebirds, terns, etc.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer river.

 

Growing up, I'd never have supposed that the pent up waters would one day flow wild and free again.

 

Shows that from time-to-time good things do happen.
