A River Runs Through It: The Removal of Savage Rapids Dam - On October 9, 2009, the last remaining radial gates at Savage Rapids Dam were closed, returning the Rogue River to its historic stream channel for the first time since 1921 and allowing salmon and trout the opportunity to migrate freely to and from the Pacific Ocean. A pumping plant was built downstream of the dam site to meet irrigation needs in the area. The total project cost was $39.3 million.
