Hiram Dam Relicensing on the Saco
Brookfield Energy has filed to relicense Hiram Dam, located just downstream of where the Shepards and Tenmile Rivers come into the Saco. Dam removal or fish passage would maximize the effectiveness of our projects in the area by allowing brook trout to range more widely to breed, feed and find cold water refugia.
FERC Scoping Meetings have been scheduled:
— February 28, 6:30 p.m., Baldwin Community Center, West Baldwin
— March 1, 2018, 9:00 a.m., Brookfield Renewable Offices, Lewiston
Please attend one of the meetings and stand up for our restoration projects and brook trout.
