Condit Dam Removal at noon - Streaming Video
- To all Dam Removal afficionados:Tune in to the online stream as history is made again today:Condit Dam on the White Salmon River in Washington State will be breached today. PacifiCorp is providing a live streaming of the event beginning at 11:30 a.m. PDT on October 26. The breach has involved boring a drain tunnel at the base of the dam to within several feet of the upstream face of the dam. The remaining concrete thickness at the upstream end of the tunnel will be breached via explosive blast, allowing the reservoir to drain in an estimated 6 hours.
Condit Dam is of reasonably similar scale as Rindge Dam on Malibu Creek, with a height of around 100 feet. If interested, you can find more information here: http://www.pacificorp.com/es/hydro/hl/condit.html
