What does it take to destroy a dam and restore a vast marshland? Pyrotechnics. This video captures the explosive destruction of a dam in Southern Oregon to re-connect the waters of a man-made lake with the natural marshlands below it. The curtain of earth shooting into the air is impressive. The anticipation of a more naturalized water flow and the preservation of stressed fish species in the watershed is really impressive.
