"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.
