Elwha River Dam Removal

Restoring the Elwha River

Removal of the Glines Canyon and the Elwha dams on the Elwha River began in September 2011 and today both dams are gone. Lake Mills and Lake Aldwell reservoirs have drained and the Elwha River flows freely from its headwaters in Olympic National Park . The 210-foot Glines Canyon Dam is the tallest dam ever removed in U.S. history. Dam removal, revegetation efforts and other restoration work is intended to restore the Elwha’s legendary salmon runs and the ecosystem of an entire river valley.
