LiveStream Season 2, Episode 1: Hydropower in NH & VT: Three dams, two states, one better deal for rivers

Dams harm rivers and fish but this is our one chance (for the next 40-50 years!) to move three dams to more river and fish-friendly operations. The Wilder, Bellows Falls, and Vernon Dams started the process of securing new operating licenses in 2013 and CRC has been involved every step of the way. Final license applications were submitted in December 2020. Great River Hydro proposed operational changes for their three dams that is a big win for the river – find out more at this event.

The year 2021 is a critical time for all of us to speak up for our rivers. Join CRC River Stewards Kathy Urffer and Andrea Donlon, and Katie Kennedy, Applied River Scientist for The Nature Conservancy, to find out more about hydro issues like erosion, recreation, and actions you can take to make a difference for your rivers.
