Dam Anniversary 

Government leaders and conservationists gathered Tuesday at a park along the Kennebec River in Augusta to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the breaching of the Edwards Dam.The removal of the longtime landmark in Maine’s capital is seen as a major step toward returning one of the state’s largest rivers to its natural state. The project has been held up as an example that could be followed in other states, especially those with sea-run fish species.Since the Edwards Dam came out in 1999, more than 430 dams have been removed.
