Ecosystem Response to the Removal of the Elwha River Dams.
One ecosystem restoration technique that can have a large-scale effect is dam removal. This single action allows for the re-connection of ecosystem processes such as upstream and downstream organism movement, the rapid transformation from lentic to lotic conditions in former reservoirs, rapid shifts in community structure and food webs, and accelerated habitat creation through sediment deposition.
