Reviving a river: Dam breached!

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 dam was breached this past Saturday! Watch the video here (you may want to skip ahead to minute 11).

However, Old Town has seen some pretty serious rain lately. It may be a couple weeks before folks can get back to work.
