Kinni River Corridor Project

Dam removal will not create ‘new’ falls. With the dams removed, the river will wash away remaining sediments that overlay the existing bedrock gorge below Lake George and the historic river channel below Lake Louise. Based on sediment mapping and measurement of the bedrock surfaces along with available topographic maps, it appears that a series of cascades, each dropping between 4-6 feet, will occur over several hundred feet from upstream of the Winter Street bridge to the confluence of the South Fork. A similar drop is also expected in the vicinity of Powell Falls. See conceptual renderings.
