Scope/Content: Abstract: To understand considerations that go into decisions on dam removal, this paper presents a case study of one FERC-licensed dam proposed for and presently undergoing removal. The Sturgeon Project is an 800 kilowatt hydropower project located on the Sturgeon River, Dickinson County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The Sturgeon Project facilities are very similar to other FERC-licensed projects that have undergone dam removal or that have been proposed for removal. This paper explores issues concerning fish passage and recolonization, restoration of the natural waterway, and managing sediments for the Sturgeon dam removal project. Scope/Content: Dam type: arch Scope/Content: Dam type: concrete Scope/Content: Height: 53 Scope/Content: Date constructed: ~1920.
