Dam Removal Expected to Help Restore Fish Stocks

As the New York Times reported this week, the removal of the Great Works Dam from the Penobscot River is expected to result in increased stocks of the endangered Atlantic salmon, alewives, shad, sturgeon, river herring, and other fish species.  See photographs of early stages of the dam removal here.

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.

Penobscot River Dam Removal Gets National Attention; Live Stream Available

The dismantling of the Penobscot River’s Great Works Dam has begun, part of a project that Forbes calls a “hat trick.”  A live stream of the dam removal is available here

The Penobscot River Restoration project involves the removal of several dams along the river to allow fish stocks to replenish, while energy production is increased at other dams with no net loss of electric generation. 

The Penobscot River Restoration Trust closed on the purchase of Great Works (and other dams) in December 2010.  Verrill Dana represents the Trust in this unique and historic public-private collaboration to improve the environment while maintaining important local sources of energy.
