Hi Hextall!

Welcome to the world of dam removal. It is a slog as people don't want change. It is very important to do temperature monitoring to show what the thermal pollution the dam causes and adds to the Global warming on this planet.

Folks also don't realize the financial impact of having to pay for the dam and fish ladder to be brought up to specifications. And as you said, there is plenty of grant money available to remove the dam.

The boating club will sue. Lawyers are members and will do everything in the book to try and wear the town, with limited resources, down. Make sure that the names of those who are adding to the tax burden by making the town defend a frivilous law suit are in all the press releases. Bad press isn't wanted by anyone.

If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.

Steve
