Powerdale Dam on the Way Out


Powerdale Dam on the Hood River will soon be nothing but a memory. Work began in April and is expected to continue through September demolishing and removing the dam which has been in place since 1923. The Dam, which is currently owned by PacifiCorp sits at river mile 4.3 of the Hood River, home to ESA listed runs of summer and winter steelhead. PacifiCorp operates a number of dams throughout the region including dams on the White Salmon and Klamath which are slated for removal.
