Fish Kill on the Union River



Fox 33 Bangor Coverage


Brookfield Renewable continues to avoid the problems faced by migrating eels and alewives on the Union River. Starting on September 24 DSF staff and volunteers began monitoring and observing fish kills below the Ellsworth Dam. This video from September 24, 2020 demonstrates the real and ongoing fish kill at Brookfield's dam in Ellsworth. DSF has filed complaints to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission regarding this ongoing event. https://elibrary.ferc.gov/eLibrary/filelist?accession_num=20201008-5111 Also on October 13, 2020, Fox 22 interviewed DSF's Brett Ciccotelli and Barbara Witham, secretary of the Union Salmon Association.  You can read the article here: https://foxbangor.com/news/item/downeast-group-looking-for-change-to-save-fish/
