Condit Dam Removal

The Condit Dam created the beautiful Northwestern Lake. Unfortunately, it also blocks salmon and steelhead passage up the White Salmon River. This video was taken and assembled by William Prothero (PhD), professor emeritus of University of California, Santa Barbara. It shows the dynamic movement of sediment as the water drained through an 18' hole at the bottom of the dam.
