Aquatic Organism Passage and Dam Removal

Tens of thousands of barriers to the passage of fish and other aquatic organisms exist across the country. Pressure to remove antiquated and inefficient dams continues to increase. High flow velocities, generally the result of poorly designed highway bridge culverts, also block aquatic species. Forsgren Associates’ team of hydrologists, biologists, and engineers has successfully removed dams and culverts and restored traditional aquatic habitat in multiple states.
