Former San Clemente Dam Site Restructured by High River Flows!

The high river flows

this rain year have moved many large boulders and large woody debris in such a way that the river channel has moved to the north side of the carefully constructed step pools and resting pools from the dam removal and reroute project. Much of the re-vegetated areas along the new river channel have also been destroyed, although much still remains. The State Coastal Conservancy and NOAA Fisheries consider this a positive step in the return of the river channel to a more natural condition, a long-term goal of the project.
