Penobscot River

Historically used for the transport of logs from the forests of northern Maine, the Penobscot River basin became a center for manufacture of paper, resulting in significant water pollution. In 2008 the Penobscot River Restoration Trust announced plans to remove two hyroelectric dams now owned by PPL Corporation and build a fish run around a third providing access the upper reaches of the river by Atlantic Salmon.[1]
