From the Vault: Dams of America

Over the last year, boaters have been enjoying the rebirth of rivers as companies and governments remove old dams, some standing as long as 98 years.

So when Canoe & Kayak’s staff dug through the archives for this month’s From the Vault, we thought it would be appropriate to feature a story that came out in March 21 years ago. The 1982 issue covered the rush to dam all of America’s rivers and what that meant for paddlers looking for whitewater.
