Laura Rose Day, Hallowell, ME Laura Rose Day is Executive Director of the Penobscot River Restoration Trust, the non-profit organization that has led implementation of the Penobscot River Restoration Project, a collaborative, public-private effort to help restore sea-run fish populations while maintaining hydropower generation through a comprehensive agreement among tribal, state and federal agencies, seven conservation groups, and dam owners. The Trust removed two dams closest to the sea (Veazie; Great Works) and decommissioned and built a bypass around an inland dam (Howland); various dam owners improved fish passage and implemented energy increases at several other dams. Laura holds degrees in law and wildlife resources and law and has served as counsel to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Manager of the National Wildlife Federation's Lake Superior and Biodiversity Project, and Watershed Program Director for the Natural Resources Council of Maine. She's worked on results-oriented collaborations engaging diverse interests on issues such as water quality, pollution prevention, habitat restoration, sustainable forestry and fish passage.

"There were a few times when we thought it might all fall apart," reflects Laura Rose Day, who represented the Natural Resources Council of Maine during the four-and-a-half years of negotiations over the dams' fate and is now executive director of the Penobscot River Restoration Trust, the organization that is carrying out the project.

...
"Basically, nobody won," says Laura Rose Day.
...
None of it was easy, according to Day. "There were many times when it was not clear that we would be able to arrive at a deal, and times where there were months when we had no negotiations at all," she says.
...
"It's a win-win," Day says.
...
"The power of this project lies in how these different parties have stepped up with their strengths when needed," says Day. "The follow-through is everything. Otherwise, you just have a thick set of papers that a lot of lawyers put together."
In just a few years, the Penobscot River will be transformed. "I've already seen a river come back before my own eyes: Just a day or two after the Edwards Dam came out, we had sturgeon swimming up the Kennebec River," says Laura Rose Day.
...
The big lesson of the Penobscot project, Laura Rose Day cautions, is not found in the details of balancing dam removal with energy production. "There will be a different solution for each place," she says.
