Work has begun on the difficult task of removing the Condit Dam on the White Salmon River. It's part of a long term effort by utility companies, tribes and federal agencies to improve salmon and steelhead habitat in the region. Tom Gauntt with PacifiCorp says, right now, water is being drawn down at Northwestern Lake, the 92-acre reservoir behind the dam. Later, the dam will be demolished. Gauntt says it will take three to five years to restore the white Salmon River back to a state that resembles its original form.
