October news

Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument created, starting about one mile below Matagamon Dam

with the East Branch of Penobscot River flowing through it.

We contacted Tim Hudson serving Superintendent, to visit and inspect our dam, which was done in October 2016, we explained our operation and inquired if there would be any impact from new Monument. He expressed they would not impact our operation. We certainly would welcome their presence at future meetings and discussions.

We had contacted Senator Angus King Jr. as well and were visited by Barbara Hayslett, Constituent Service Representative, Barbara visited the dam in October and has since sent us information for areas to research for possible grants, this information has been forwarded to our Board and we are currently researching .
