Xcel Energy is looking at the possibility of removing its Minnesota Falls dam on the Minnesota River. The dam was built in 1905 to house one of the state's earliest hydroelectric facilities. It also provided a reservoir of cooling water for a coal-fired power plant built in the 1930s. Tribune photo
