Restore is a special publication of the Hydropower Reform Coalition, which provides an overview of dam removal nationally, and documents past, current, and planned removals in the Pacific Northwest.

The Coalition developed this report to discuss removal of hydropower and other dams as a topic and to highlight restoration successes and community and watershed benefits from dam removal in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Providing timely and credible data, and facilitating dialogue regarding dam removal to decision makers, stakeholders and other community members is another goal of this publication. Our hope is that this dialogue will be useful in determining the benefits and costs of future dam removal opportunities.
