Summary: The article is informing us about the dam and to be aware about what has been happening. What has been happening is that many damns are being torn down which allows the river and ecosystems to rebound. According to the article decommissioning dams has become an inconsequential share of region's power which may become unsafe or too costly to repair. So we need to learn better ways to build these dams because the people of the area want their rivers to have fishes again. What are dams used for? It is used for water and power supply and around 800,000 dams operate worldwide but they have been falling.
Reflection: I believe the dams are inefficient because they're always other alternatives for water and power supply that are less dangerous. Like less invasive hydroelectric alternatives should be considers because dams takes so much space taking away the invasive species and other negative things. It is also only considered to be 0.1 percent of our states water supply.
