Personal Reflection

I believe that doing this project has been and eye-opening experience especially being able to go and visit the breath-taking views of what was once known as the Hetch Hetchy Valley. I personally believe that the environmentally ethical thing to do is remove the dam completely, but unfortunately this would be far to costly.  To make this more practical they need to blow a hole in the bottom of the dam and let the water run throughout the pipes and watersheds naturally.  Knocking down the bottom of the damn will release the water in the reservoir and over time restore the Hetch Hetchy Valley.  I feel that our society is more interested in what will make them more money or grow socially and economically not what is right and just for the environment.  The only way to change these environmental problems is to start individually and spread throughout the community and eventually throughout the nation.
