WWD Restoration 233Protecting our streams from degradation and pollution is important, while also advancing restoration projects that clean up our creeks and restore stream flows. In 2010, Rogue Riverkeeper generated public support for the removal of Gold Ray Dam on the Rogue River to restore historic stream flows and help migrating salmon and steelhead. Jackson County, who owned the 104 year-old dam, voted unanimously to remove this major fish barrier. Rogue Riverkeeper, alongside Rogue Flyfishers and Waterwatch, intervened on behalf of Jackson County in legal efforts to ensure this river restoration project went forward. The County was victorious and the dam was removed in late summer 2010.

Rogue Riverkeeper is also working with partners to advance federal and state protections for the Lower Rogue River, the Upper Rogue River and the Caves Creek subwatershed in the Illinios sub-basin.
