On June 5 a celebration at the Grand Falls Fishway was held, near the banks of the St. Croix River. The event was in honor of the reopening of all the St. Croix to the native alewives. Beginning in 1995, the Maine Legislature had closed the Grand Falls and other fishways to the alewives on the concern they might be adversely impacting the smallmouth bass, an introduced alien species.

The Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) announced it has now restored access to 15,000 acres of ponds and lakes and 300 miles of river for Maine’s native sea-run fish. These achievements are part of ASF’s Maine Headwaters Project that is focused on restoring critical spawning habitat to sea-run fish in tributaries identified as high priorities in State of Maine fisheries restoration plans. While the target species are Atlantic salmon and alewives, these restoration projects provide a broad range of benefits for all fish and wildlife along the river corridor.

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!
