Reviving a river: Checking in at Great Works Dam

Each week, our folks at the Maine field office are driving by to check on the progress of the Great Works Dam removal, part of the Penobscot River Restoration Project.

The photo is taken from the Bradley shore on the east side looking at the dam from downstream. You can see the 1930s fishway in the center, with the pulp mill on the left.

We’ll be seeing a lot more change on the section at left as continues.
