Maine is expected to receive $7,700,000 from the federal stimulus plan to help the recovery of Atlantic Salmon.Most of the money would go to the demolition of Great Works Dam on the Penobscot River. $1,600,000 would be used to replace culverts as part of a collaboration between local industry, the state, and the federal government on Atlantic Salmon restoration.The funding is expected to create at least 60 jobs in Maine in the next two years.
