Removing Dams

I know that dams, being man made structures, often require extensive maintenance because they do not last forever. Do we ever decide to remove dams rather than maintain them? Say for instance if the costs out weight the benefits of keeping it. Hypothetically, Would it be considered likely that at some point in the not so distant future, should we find a way or increase efficiency of other means of producing power that we start to see the dams built between the boom of the 1930's to 1970's removed altogether?
