Removal of two Saranac River dams will help New York salmon

Once a fish ladder is constructed on the Imperial Dam in Plattsburgh, N.Y., salmon will be able to get to this part of the Saranac River. And when a pair of upstream dams are removed, salmon will be able to go even further. (Photo by Dan Ladd)
The Saranac River will have improved access for spawning landlocked Atlantic salmon later this year with the removal of remnants of two dams that impede migrating salmon and other fish. The remains of the Indian Rapids and Fredenburgh dams are scheduled to be removed from the Saranac later this year, part of ongoing efforts by Lake Champlain fishery advocates to continue to clear man-made obstacles from the river to improve its hospitality to salmon from Lake Champlain.
