Bangor Daily News: The decade-long effort to reopen nearly 1,000 miles of fish habitat in central and northern Maine surpassed a milestone last week when a coalition purchased 3 major dams on the Penobscot River north of Bangor.

Next up for the coalition: complete plans to start dismantling or bypassing the dams over the next several years.
