Lake Level Drops for Damariscotta Dam Evaluation
March 13, 2012
Lincoln County News: As residents have likely noticed, Damariscotta Lake is significantly lower than usual this winter.
Kruger Energy, the power company that operates the dam at Damariscotta Mills, has lowered the level more than usual so they can assess the structural integrity of the dam and other equipment in the Mills.
Al Railsback, executive director of the Damariscotta Lake Watershed Association, said the evaluation is expected to be complete in the next few weeks. After any necessary repairs are made, the lake level will be restored to normal.
