DAMS OUT – Rindge Dam

Rindge Dam, located 3 miles upstream from Malibu coastline, is listed as one of the Top 5 California dams to remove in our latest report.

Built in 1926, it once provided water for irrigation and household use in Malibu. However, after just 30 years, the 100-foot dam became obsolete after the reservoir filled entirely with sediment. Today it is part of Malibu Creek State Park and remains a total barrier to southern steelhead migration.

Removing Rindge Dam will reconnect access to over 18 miles of high-quality spawning and rearing habitat for the federally threatened southern steelhead.

  1. Just keep blasting the unspeakable things, fellas.

    Not such potentially good news about the world’s great rivers (and countless far-lesser ones) in an article in the much-respected journal “Nature” featured in The Guardian on Wednesday.

    I don’t know about blasting dams … maybe some of their still extremely, ecologically “unwoke” advocates and builders, though … time really IS beginning to run out for a lot of living stuff now, including us…..
