Water Restoration – A Project Of Maine To Restore Its Rivers And Aquatic Resources

GLOBALIZATION which is the totally free flow of goods and services amongst nations claims an additional victim! This hydra-like monster who depletes sources and destroys everything along its path added another state in its long list of victims, this time the State of Maine.

Maine has been regarded as as the largest supply of paper producing in all of the United States until the 20th century. This is due to its terrain. Eighty % of this state is created up of forests which grow trees like pine, balsam, fir, basswood maple, oak, spruce, etc which are great sources for constructing wooden ships and paper generating. Its manufacturing industries and tourism market have been flourishing then. Maine is also blessed with massive rivers and lakes making it as a single of the leading fishing states of U.S. Among them are the Androscoggin and Saco which originate in New Hampshire flowing across Southern Maine and into the Atlantic Ocean, the Penobscot and Kennebec Rivers, the St. Croix and St. John and the biggest lake, Moosehead. Maine’s other significant lakes incorporate the Belgrades, the Grands, Rangeley and Sebago. These rivers are wealthy in brook trout, salmon perch, pickerel, alewives and lobsters which are discovered at Rockland, edge of Penobscot Bay. These aquatic resources had been abundant in Maine till a number of years ago when their numbers went down drastically due to the fact of overfishing and the destruction of Maine’s rivers and lakes due to the number of dams constructed along the rivers to assistance its industries. These dams impede the free of charge movement of fishes along the diverse lakes and rivers, thus limiting their reproduction.

Maine authorities recognize this big issue and have taken methods towards the restoration of the rivers and lakes to enhance the quickly dwindling quantity of its fishes. These consist of the following

1. The Sebasticook River Watershed Restoration in Newport, Maine. The Sebasticook River is the largest tributary to the Kennebec river. This river is considered the habitat of nine diverse species of sea-run (anadromous) fish. Restoration of this consists of 3 projects.

a. The removal of Guilford Dam, a fish passage installed on the Sebasticook Lake outlet dam.

b. Restoration of the river bed in between Sebasticook Dam and the former Guilford Dam.

c. Installation of two fish passages at and under the outlet of Plymouth pond.

The removal of Guilford Dam will let the free of charge movement of the fish to swim upstream to the Sebasticook River.

With the restoration of the Sebasticook Watershed, the authorities of Maine hope to improve the quantity of fish spawning like the American shad, river herring, striped bass, Atlantic salmon and American eel.

Pleasant River Hatchery

Portion of the efforts in the restoration of fish particularly the Atlantic salmon is the project called Pleasant River Hatchery. This is an education and enhancement facility at the Wild Salmon Resource Center. The goal is to hatch Atlantic salmon into the Pleasant river. This facility was constructed to educate students and neighborhood members about the conservation of Atlantic salmon.

Yet another effort towards restoration of Atlantic salmon, which is getting scarcer and topic to extinction, is the proposal to expand the endangered species to consist of Atlantic salmon from the Androscoggin river to the Dennys river including the anadromous salmon of the Kennebec and Penebscot rivers. The listing will provide full protection from the “Endangered Species Act”. If authorized after the December 2008 deadline, Atlantic salmon and the anadromous salmon from the rivers which were excluded in the 2006 assessment of the status of the Atlantic salmon of Maine will now be incorporated in the list of endangered species beneath the Endangered Species Act.

With all these restoration efforts undertaken by the authorities of Maine, they hope to boost the number of dwindling aquatic resources especially fish.
