Mousam River Dams Relicensing

Kennebec Light and Power District will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, March 31 at 7:00 pm on the third floor of the Kennebunk Town Hall. We urge you to attend.

Sharon Staz has been replaced by new General Manager Todd Shea who has stated a need for public input. Let him know that dam removal is the option that makes the most sense economically and environmentally. Hearing it from folks who live in or fish the watershed will have the most impact. CLICK HERE for details. If you want to know why fish ladders are not the answer, read this study by our friends at Wells Reserve.


Metallic Mining Rules Back Before Maine Legislature

Mining Maine's volcanic sulfide deposits could be a disaster. LD 146 resubmits a weak set of rules to the legislature that could allow that to happen.

Our letters to MDEP made a real difference in the denial of the Scribner’s Mill Dam permit application assuring Sebago Lake’s landlocked salmon continued access to their historic spawning range. LD 146 is even more important as a number of significant fisheries could be at risk due to their proximity to metallic sulfide deposits. These include: the Fish River Chain, the Magalloway, Cupsuptic, Dead, and Pleasant (West Branch) rivers. The damage done could be irreversible.

Please read the details on the Advocate page and take action.
