Group removes some of last visible remnants of Marmot Dam

Ten years after the Marmot Dam was removed, partially thanks to a big explosion, conservationists returned to that location along the Sandy River Saturday to take some of the last remaining visible parts from the dam’s existence.

Members of the Sandy River Basin Watershed Council cut down two large signs that used to stand along the shoreline of a reservoir behind the Marmot Dam. One read “Danger Ahead. Dam Spillway. 1/4 Mile.” The other said “Dam Spillway, 40 Foot Drop, Exit To The Right.”
