The new Carmel River channel with step pools and resting pool at the former San Clemente Dam site

"Water flowed freely through the Carmel River’s new route about midway up the 36-mile river during a visit to the site. It rushed over a series of step pools and swirled into resting pools along a quarter-mile stretch of the river specifically designed to provide the best possible passageway for the endangered Steelhead to swim upstream and allow the river’s crucial downstream habitat to begin the recovery process."
