I attended the meeting last night at Town Hall with about 50 other folks. If you were to employ Tuckers pure citizen count, 40.
I left after they finally( 20 plus minutes of introductions) got to the meat and the consultant dismissed concerns about sediment, and flow rate changes , and were heading off into cultural resources. I am not that interested in those discussions.
Here is all you need to know, if the Dam gets removed it will have no effect on the Squamscott River below the Dam and a negligible effect upstream. The Squamscott below the dam is not layered with toxic sediments from the Mill. It was a very good report. The only effect upstream might be that some areas that are prone to flooding, now could be suitable for homes.
Frankly I can see no impediment to removal.
