Time Lapse of Amazing Dam Removal

What happens when you blow up a dam?

The removal of unnecessary dams is a wonderful way to revitalize river systems. Several dams have been removed in the Pacific Northwest in the last few years. Check out this stunning video of the Condit Dam being removed from the White Salmon river in Washington state.
