Not sure if most of you saw this on the news. I thought it was pretty neat.

Muddy water is pouring through a hole breached in Condit Dam in Washington's South Cascades. PacifiCorp elected to remove the dam rather than pay to install fish passage structures that would have been required to relicense it. (Oct. 26)

Video of the dam being breach with explosives:
