You may decrease or eliminate habitat for as many species as you help out when you put in a dam. Careful consideration needs to be taken before doing thos projects, as it is very hard to fully understand the effects to the rest of the ecosystem is some, seemingly minor species are no longer in it. Sometime there is little effect, and sometimes it can be completely wrecked. Also, what NRDC is talking about, "good" notill, "good" covercrops, etc., work. How else do you explain the producers utilizing these practices still having viable crops when many conventional till neighbors' fields are droughted out? Also it keeps the soil where it should be, and not in the bottom of your lakes.
