WHITE SALMON, Wash. —

Crews are working furiously to meet an Aug. 31 target date to remove the structure of Condit Dam.

Portland, Ore.-based utility PacifiCorp breached the dam in October, releasing the White Salmon River to flow freely for the first time in nearly a century. The 125-foot dam was built in 1913.

Workers now are laboring 12 hours a day, six days per week to remove the concrete structure of the dam. Some 500 cubic yards of concrete are hauled out each day.

PacifiCorp project coordinator Todd Olson told The Columbian newspaper that workers still have more than halfway to go with the structure itself.
