Excavation work continues at the site of the Elwha Dam, part of the Elwha River restoration project in Olympic National Park near Port Angeles, Washington March 23, 2012. The two dams, about 80 miles (129 km) northwest of Seattle, blocked migratory routes of salmon and steelhead trout to some 70 miles (113 km) of tributary habitat, in the process robbing Native Americans of income by halting a treaty-guaranteed reservation fishery.
