Stanford should abandon the Searsville Dam

The San Francisquito Creek watershed presents a unique opportunity to recover critical habitat for Stanford’s native steelhead and other wildlife. If the university agrees to finally remove the Searsville Dam and its sediment-choked reservoir, the network of creeks on Stanford lands can once again flourish and support a thriving wild steelhead run that Stanford and the surrounding community can be proud of.
