    Re: Maine Brook Trout

    I'm looking forward to hearing about the remaining 8 days of this marvelous trip. How about some pics and what happened to the mutt?

Their initial design couldn't be permitted regardless of cost because it left a dry channel for something like 35 yards and when I did the math, the best year they could generate power was about $33,000 worth. Put $30K average revenue per year against well over $1 million in hydro equipment and installation costs and do some basic ROI calculations......the whole system would need to be replaced due to age before it covered its initial cost.

    Well, contact them, and don't throw my name in the mess please. I was at the election night party and when she won, I started chanting, "tear down the dam, tear down the dam"...
