Veazie Dam: Freeing the East Channel
On October 10, 2013 the Sargent Corp. breached the cofferdam that allowed them to remove the main section of the Veazie Dam. After breaching, workers trucked materials to the other side of the cofferdam to extend it back to the west shoreline so they could continue removing the foundation of the forebay wall, the remainder of the fish ladder, and other infrastructure near the Veazie powerhouse. The east channel of the Penobscot River at this site now flows freely over bedrock for the first time in 100 years!

Maine is a water rich state, with thousands of miles of rivers and streams cutting through our fields and forests. There are also thousands of miles of public and private roads and trails that dissect the state, but in the past when it came to building crossings over those waterways the thought often was about how to get water from one side of the road to another, not about the fish trying to cross under the roads.
