Dam Relicensing

The Maine TU Council FERC committee was formed to coordinate relicensing actions in Maine and its border waters by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

The work of the committee is eclectic, but its basic functions include the following:

  • Monitor and report FERC actions throughout Maine
  • Execute or support FERC-related actions
  • Approach and interact with Maine government officials as needed on FERC matters
  • Conduct training for groups with FERC project ownership
  • Conduct continuous outreach to local groups
  • Interact with and inform the Hydropower Reform Coalition
  • Prioritize and interact with academia to accomplish needed studies
