Scope/Content: Abstract: Can dams have both positive and negative effects, especially over time? Should removing a dam be an option in managing river systems in the United States? Can removing a dam offer the equivalent or increased benefits to services that a dam currently provides? Does the existing institutional framework for managing dams and water resources provide for effect consideration and implementation of dam removal as an option? How do those responsible for dams and rivers fairly evaluate and make timely decisions about options, including dam removal? Honoring the complexity of issues and communities involved, what can be done to improve policy and decisionmaking, practice, and public involvement?
