San Clemente Dam removal

"The proposed project would blast a new channel through the ridge separating the river from the creek, and divert the Carmel River into the creek approximately one-half mile upstream from the dam.
Project Benefits:
  • 25 miles of spawning and rearing habitat for steelhead trout
  • restoring the natural sediment supply to the downstream beaches
  • providing new recreation opportunities for the public"
