August 28, 2023: Bar Mills Final Study Plan – BWPH had intended to conduct all studies described herein during the summer and fall of 2023, with study results provided in the Draft Study Report to be issued for agency, stakeholder and public review in late 2023. However, due to the abnormally high level of precipitation in Maine and New England during the summer thus far and which are forecasted to continue, river flows that on average this time of year are in the 800 cfs range have been in the 5,000 to 6,500 range, making field and river access conditions unsafe. While BWPH currently still plans to conduct studies as flow conditions allow in the next 2-3 months, there is a high likelihood that field dependent studies may be postponed until 2024, which would result in a target issuance of a Draft Study Report in late 2024.
