PROTECTING THE CONNECTICUT RIVER – Meeting Monday, June 7

On Monday June 7, 2021 Ms. Kathy Urffer from the Connecticut River Conservancy will be making a presentation to the Walpole Conservation Commission at the Walpole Town Hall at 7:00 pm. Along with many other concerns, she will present the Conservancy’s  recreation recommendations that have been submitted, jointly with the Appalachian Mountain Club  to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as part of the relicensing of 5 dams in our region on the CT River. Topics of particular concern include  Traditional Cultural Properties, wildlife, and recreation.  

Great River Hydro, who owns these dams, has put forth a plan that will be positive for the River.  The term of their license renewal could be 30-50 years, thus it is imperative to get everything right for both New Hampshire and Vermont towns bordering the river. Meeting starts at 7:00 pm. For more information you can read Ms. Urffer’s comments during the Selectboard meeting on May 20 – https://thewalpolean.org/2021/05/28/selectboard-meeting-minutes-5-20-21/
