PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) -- Demolition work has lowered the Glines Canyon Dam and water started cascading Tuesday over the top of the dam on the Elwha River.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/rhCz5m ) large portions of the 210-foot tall Glines Canyon Dam and the 108-foot tall Elwha Dam have disappeared since last month when work began.

It's a three-year, $325 million project to remove the two dams and restore salmon runs to the Olympic Peninsula river.
