Thanks to your support, WaterWatch and project partners successfully completed demolition in summer 2015 and removed Fielder and Wimer dams from Evans Creek in the Rogue Basin.

These two obsolete dams ranked fourth and eighth on the state of Oregon's top fish passage barrier priorities list. Their removal reconnects up to 70 miles of high-quality habitat in Evans Creek and continues to build on our highly successful "Free the Rogue" campaign, which has now helped achieve the removal or notching of Savage Rapids, Gold Hill, Gold Ray, and Elk Creek dams to benefit Rogue Basin salmon and steelhead.

All funds generated in this campaign helped our work in bringing down the dams, and this campaign is now complete. Thank you!

Keep an eye out for upcoming projects to continue our mission to protect and restore streamflows in Oregon's rivers. We couldn't do this necessary work without such dedicated supporters.

Happy Holidays!
