What Juro didn't say in his post on this, is the amount of damage these small dams have done and do to anadromous fish. It is surprising how small a dam can prevent anadromous fish from ascending beyond it. We all ought to write and try to get them removed.

Juro,

Thanks for the post reminding us to do our part by sending a letter or email.
