Benefits of dam’s removal will reach all the way to Mississippi River
MINNESOTA — Removing the Minnesota Falls dam on the Minnesota River will have implications reaching all the way to the upper Mississippi River basin, more than 300 river miles distant.
With the dam’s removal, the Minnesota River will again free fall over granite bedrock and boulders along the reach of river extending three miles upstream to the Granite Falls dam.
The long stretch of whitewater is expected to attract more than recreational paddlers.
