The Sustainable Rivers Project (Video)

This week, we wanted to highlight the Sustainable Rivers Project, a joint effort between the Nature Conservancy, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and University of California-Davis which has been looking at modernizing the operation of dams  to achieve multiple benefits – social, economic, and environmental. Studies have been done on the Savannah River in Georgia and South Carolina along with the Mokelumne River in California with very good results. The video below introduces the program and the initial studies.
