If a dam falls, does the river make a sound?

Okay, it’s a poor attempt at the adage of, if a tree falls, does it make a sound adage. When I saw this article however, it at least resonated with me.

So I’ve always been a proponent of removing dams and according to this article, “What Happens to a River When a Dam is Removed” at the Environmental News Network via Oregon State University suggests that rivers can recover surprising fast. As someone who works near the Mighty Mississippi, that’s music to my ears!
