Material had built up behind the dam and ended up washing down the creek, causing concern among downstream property owners. WATER : .... ing tons of debris and silt into the creek posing possible prob- lems for residents downstream. The old dam was built many years.ago, and was slated for removal by a local conservation group, the CASTERS. The CASTERS has been in- volved with removing creek blockages throughout this part of the Russian River watershed in an effort to improve steel- head spawning habitat. "Nature beat us to it," noted CASTERS spokesman Lester Rosenthal. He has been work- ing on the project for some time, but resolving liability and pri- vate property issues concerning the dam was daunting. Rosenthal said that removing the dam piece by piece was the original goal and would have been a lot better than the way it finally came out. Steve Ginsburg, a resident on south River Road also experi- enced flooding. "It rained so much the drainage ditch over- flowed and water ran into my house, he explained. He believes it was a combina- tion of ground water and drin- age. "It was probably because it just rained so much. I can't give a lot of details because I was asleep!" he said. Ginsberg awoke about 2 a.m. and found two inches of water in his house. "It's not as bad as it was two year ago," he said. "But as some- one once said, any floodingis no fun."
