      There was no net lose of Hydro power and there will be an improvement in teh environment.  A win-win solution.

    I just can’t wait till the Alewives  enter our Central Maine ponds. Such a nice useful fish especially when they die off in droves and float to the surface to rot and stink all summer.

    • pbmann

      I wonder how our Maine ponds survived before man started to “improve” them?

    The Penobscot River Restoration Trust, RESTORE, and other mindless Quimby followers want us to believe that this is it; news flash, they want to do away will all dams.

    Dam removal, downstream from Millinocket & Creepy Ken Salazar shows up, this is a very bad thing.

    From the administration that wants to control everything we do, sends their watchdog to Maine (yet one another green mission)-(on the taxpayers dime) to ensure their green project moves ahead.

    Got some news for you Ken, we drew the line here in Millinocket, and no slimy politician is going to take our dams, or allow your biggest contributor to establish a National Park.

    So Bring It On ________

    An incredible act!  Removing working hydro electric generation while (at the same time) “investing” in wind power and following a “snake oil” promotion of off shore wind power that will probably never come to fruition.
     
    The governor is correct!  They should be ashamed!

    Bring back the salmon which will bring in outta state fisherman who will, in turn, spend their money in north/central Maine.

    Put scrubbers on the coal fired power plants that send their poison to our air, lakes and rivers.

    Keep the dams we have and install fishways and lifts and stop using our tax dollars to tear the tops off our beautiful mountains and sending our wind power to outta state investors.

    Create electricity from the dams and heat our homes with pellets and biomass. Use oil only for our cars and trucks.

    And don’t vote for Angus King who would not be invested in destroying the scenic beauty of this unique state if he wasn’t sucking off the govt. teat!

      What a farce, you can’t keep salmon.And the Northern Pike WILL travel northward into pristine trout fishing. PRRT said it is too expensive to put a lift in. I wouldn’t vote for King anyways. Not to get Obama out of there.

    • Angus is a Virginian he has NO investment in Maine EXCEPT the big $.

  • dam removal is part of a treaty with the nations with=in Maine.   Can anybody say Passamaquoddy Land Act????   waterways “in situ” as treaty signed…..get off the grid. depend on noone.

    It was reported on MPR that 95% of the salmon going up the Penobscot are hatchery fish…so much for the myth about native fish.  Were it not for the hatcheries Maine would have few fish of any kind; making our fishery almost entirely artifical….been that way for decades.

    The alewive run on the Andro. this year was strong, fish were 5′ deep at the viewing window.  Research has shown that it’s not the dams–which were almost all in place by 1820, that are the problem but something far at sea. The runs started to drop in the 70’s to a fraction of what was taken for granted…no dams involved. 

    So live out the fantasy and appreciate the rare salmon that makes it up the K_bec and leaps out of the water at you boat; but remember the dams are not the problem; but the solution lays far in the ocean and in a new generation of waterways which provide passage and hydropower.

  • “Great Works”  From a time when humans were more important than fish.

     great scam will be the historical memory from our time.

    This is a huge waste of precious funds. 
    LePage is right when he suggests we need more and not less hydro power.
