Decommissioning and removalVideosPublished   3/2/2022

Battle Creek is one of five dams that we’ve identified to be ready for removal for the benefit of the surrounding ecosystem and communities. Historically, Battle Creek was home to a diverse assemblage of anadromous and resident fishes adapted to its specific hydrology and habitats. The construction of the Battle Creek Hydroelectric Project virtually eliminated access to prime upstream habitat, as well as connectivity for resident fish populations. Today, there is new hope on the horizon to provide volitional passage to all historical fish habitats in Battle Creek and restore its natural hydrograph.
