What is Rock the Dam?
Rock the Dam is a campaign organized by concerned and informed citizens to encourage a responsible, forward-thinking future for the New Savannah Bluff Lock & Dam on the Savannah River.
This aging structure has long outlived its original purpose and is in a critical state of disrepair, and fixing it would put local taxpayers on the hook for millions. The dam impedes fishing, swimming, recreation and travel on the river, all things that would become possible or drastically improve once it's gone. We've got a solution that will save taxpayers money, help the fish and health of the river, and preserve the pool.
Dam removals all across the country have successfully restored river systems and given them back to the people. The time has come to free the mighty Savannah River and with it, unleash an incredible future for everyone in our community.
We think it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change our area for the better.
