Dam removal outside the US

Wikipedia has an article on Dam removal, but it concentrates on the US. Have there been any largish dams outside the US removed?

Who ya gonna call? Dambusters! :slight_smile:

A couple in the Loire drainage basin in France were removed in the 1990s to improve salmon migration:

Maisons-Rouges Dam cite

Saint-Étienne-du-Vigan Dam cite in French

The document Dam Removal: The Global View (PDF) has some information about dam removals and proposed removals outside the US on pages 6 and 7.

Thanks, bib. Looks like several dams in the Loire drainage basin have been removed.

On the other hand, I see that they’ve been talking about removing the Theodosia and Coursier Dams in British Columbia for quite a few years, but I can’t find evidence that they’ve actually been removed.

Upon further research, I found that the Coursier Dam was removed in 2003. Still not sure about the Theodosia Dam.
