About DRIP

The Dam removal information portal is a place to explore trends in dam removals and associated scientific studies. Users can explore empirically based physical, biological and water quality studies based on types of study metrics, geography, or size of the dam. Results can be downloaded based on customized search criteria specified by the user. The database will be updated annually so that DRIP contains the most up to date science about dam removal outcomes. We appreciate any feedback, reporting of issues, and communication of missing removals, publications and critical functionality to help us keep DRIP relevant.
