The Town of Yarmouth is close to making a decision on removal of its two head-of-tide dams. If you are:• A Yarmouth resident
• A resident of a town in the watershed, inc. North Yarmouth, Pownal, Durham, New Gloucester and Gray -- potentially inc. Freeport, Brunswick, Poland, Auburn and Raymond
• Anyone who fishes the watershed: the Royal, Collyer Brook, Chandler Brook, etc.
• Anyone who fishes Casco Bay for stripers (the Royal being a potential source of YOY river herring (peanut bunker)
Contact Bob Harradon and see how you can get involved.
The lowest three dams on the Mousam
in Kennebunk: Kesslen, Twine Mill and Dane-Perkins, need FERC
relicensing by 2022, but the power company has already started the
public discussion to determine if they should apply for
relicensing in 2017.
Curtis Mildner has volunteered to be Sebago TU’s point person for the relicensing. He’s going to need the active participation of the membership if he is going to be able to influence the outcome.
If you fish the Mousam or live in the watershed which
includes the towns of Alfred, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Lyman, Sanford,
Shapleigh, and Waterboro, please get involved: contact Curt Mildner.
