After first-year tinkering, Milford fish lift paying dividends. Bangor Daily News June 2015

The Milford Dam fish lift project took about 18 months to complete, and construction finally wrapped up in July of 2014. The improved fish passage was a component of the Penobscot River Restoration Project, which called for the removal of two dams and an a fish bypass farther upstream, in Howland. The project has opened up hundreds of miles of upstream habitat to fish that were unable to pass barriers before the dams were removed.
