American Rivers, in collaboration with a number of partners, offers "Taking a Second Look: Communities and Dam Removal."

This 22-minute video is meant to inform dam owners, local businesses, public officials, resource agencies, and other concerned community members about the benefits of dam removal as a river restoration tool.

Featuring case studies of communities that have removed dams in Wisconsin, Maine, and California, the video addresses many of the issues and concerns that are involved in the process of deciding whether or not to remove a dam.

The story of river restoration in the three communities is told through before-and-after video, photographs, and testimonials from business owners, local citizens, and officials.

The video is a collaborative project of American Rivers, Trout Unlimited, River Alliance of Wisconsin, Natural Resources Council of Maine, and the Atlantic Salmon Federation, in partnership with the National Park Service Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program.

It is generously funded in part by the Mississippi Interstate Cooperative Resource Association, an organization of 28 state natural resource agencies.
