Lovelace Dam, another dam removed on Slate Creek

In late July, the M&M Services crew finished the removal of an abandoned concrete former mill dam called Lovelace Dam as part of a larger focused effort to restore access to habitat for native salmon and steelhead in Slate Creek, a key spawning tributary of the Applegate River.

This dam removal marks the fourth fish-impeding dam to be removed from Slate Creek in the last three years and as a result of that effort, 11 more miles of Slate Creek have been made more easily accessible to fish and other wildlife.

This project was developed by WaterWatch of Oregon and managed by RRWC, in collaboration with numerous other key partners that made this effort possible.
