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.

Demolition is proceeding smoothly with the help of very low flows and the ability to work within the coffer dam. The outer timber crib section is nearly gone and the next one may be chewed up by the end of the week. Check out this series put together by Steve Shepard, the Maine hydro-licensing coordinator at our field office!

Also, you can now watch the progress at the live EarthCam! You can access more images at the Penobscot River Restoration Trust’s Flickr and Facebook pages. Check them out!
