Dam Removal Expected to Help Restore Fish Stocks

Verrill Dana represents the Penobscot River Restoration Trust, which is funding the removal of hydroelectric dams from the Penobscot River with no net loss in energy production.  The Trust’s historic public-private initiative has earned it national attention and acclaim.
