About this Event

Dams harm rivers and fish but this is our one chance (for the next 40-50 years!) to move two hydro facilities to more river and fish-friendly operations. The Turners Falls Dam and Northfield Mountain Pump Storage started the process of securing new operating licenses in 2013 and CRC has been involved every step of the way. Final license applications were submitted in December 2020.  We have long known that upstream fish passage at Turners Falls is inadequate and the river channel below the dam is dry most of the year – find out what is proposed at this event. 

The year 2021 is a critical time for all of us to speak up for our rivers. Join CRC River Stewards Kathy Urffer and Andrea Donlon to find out more about hydro issues like river flows, fish passage, endangered species, and actions you can take to make a difference for your rivers.
