A damned dam on Maine’s Penobscot River

Tear that sucker down and restore a masterful free-flowing river. That’s the theme of comments contained within this article from Maine. There is nothing like a free-flowing river. I was disappointed to learn, not long after moving into my new home in Vermont, to find Green Mountain Power’s Essex hydroelectric dam is alive and well on the Winooski River just a half-mile north of where I’m sitting.
