The 107 year old Minnesota Falls dam was removed from the Minnesota River near Granite Falls, MN in early 2013. At around 600 feet, the dam was the longest dam across the Minnesota River, but was no longer needed for company operations and had become significantly deteriorated. The demolition of the dam and restoration of the river, completed over two months, was captured in this time lapse video.
This Xcel Energy project was supported by Rachel Contracting as the primary demolition and earthworks contractor and by Barr Engineering as the primary engineering firm.
