Welcome to the San Clemente Dam Removal & Carmel River Reroute Project Website

The Carmel River Reroute & San Clemente Dam Removal (CRRDR) Project is the culmination of a long-term effort to resolve the public safety issues associated with the existing San Clemente Dam, while improving access for steelhead to upstream spawning and rearing habitat, sediment transport to the lower river and Carmel River beach, and ecological continuity of aquatic and riparian habitats through the project reach.
