W. Enfield Dam Water Levels

Following this spring’s postponement of flashboard repairs at the West Enfield Project, Bangor-Pacific Hydro Associates (BPHA) now plans to perform the repairs next week (on August 9 – 10). These repairs will require a drawdown of the impoundment by about 7.5 feet below full pond, which would begin on Monday, August 8. Although refill of the impoundment will be largely dictated by river flows, BPHA is targeting the end of the week (by August 12) for a return to normal full pond conditions on the Penobscot River. As an added note, BPHA also intends to perform annual maintenance of the upstream and downstream fishways during this timeframe.
