Ellsworth Fire Chief ..., 10 Dec 2014 [cached]
Ellsworth Fire Chief Richard Tupper said the flooding was initially due to the recent rainfall. It will be intensified, however, because Black Bear Hydro is releasing water from the Graham Lake Dam, causing higher water levels downstream.
Tupper said the company has to keep the level of Graham Lake somewhat consistent, and so in rain events such as this one water must be released to maintain that level.
"It rises quickly when there's a significant amount of rainfall," said Tupper, noting the many brooks and streams that feed into the lake.
Tupper said the decision to close a road is a "collaborative effort" between the fire, police and public works departments. He said city officials generally know where to expect flooding problems because of past experiences.
He said if citizens see flooding on a roadway and there are no signs to indicate a road closure or detour, however, they should call the non-emergency line for either the fire department (667-8666) so that officials can make a note of it.
"It's a good idea to let us know," Tupper said, adding that flooding can also force public safety personnel to adjust their routes if they need to respond to a call somewhere in the city.
Tupper said in the case of the Shore Road closure, it's fortunate that there are no residences in the immediate vicinity. He said residents in that area are familiar with the situation and know to adjust their travel plans when such flooding occurs.
Tupper stressed that motorists should heed road closures anytime flooding is taking place, because attempting to ford a section of road that's underwater is dangerous.
"You have no way of telling if the road is actually still there under the water," he wrote on the Fire Department's Facebook page.

At about 8:40 a.m., an off-duty Ellsworth firefighter reported the blaze to the Ellsworth Fire Department, Chief Richard Tupper said.
Paid on-call firefighter Fred Hersom called in the fire and immediately checked the scene to make sure no one was inside the 428 Bangor Road home near the Dedham town line, Tupper said.
Officials were able to reach a renter who confirmed that there was no one in the house during the time of the fire, Tupper said.
At 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Tupper said that Captain Kevin Kane of the Ellsworth Fire Department was still investigating the cause of the fire.

" The biggest challenge is keeping everybody in one location," said Deputy Fire Chief, Richard Tupper, with the Ellsworth Fire Department.

Firefighters arrived and made quick work of knocking down the flames, according to Ellsworth Fire Chief Richard Tupper.
Though they did not kick in because the flames were outside the building, Tupper said he is glad the building had working smoke detectors. He said between this fire and the deadly fire in Portland over the weekend, it's a good reminder for homeowners to check the batteries in their smoke detectors.
