Celebrating the Five Year Anniversary of Breaching the Milltown Dam

March 28th, 2013 marks the 5th anniversary of reuniting two mighty Montana rivers. The Milltown Dam was breached on this day by work crews which allowed water  to flow freely through the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers for the first time in 100 years. This action set in motion one of the most remarkable river restoration projects ever undertaken.
