Scope/Content: Abstract: FERC issued docket number p-7118: On September 10, 2001, State of Maine Department of Marine Resources (MDMR), the exemptee for the Smelt Hill Hydroelectric Project, filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) seeking to surrender its exemption and remove the Smelt Hill Dam. The Smelt Hill Dam is located at the head-of-tide on the Presumpscot River, town of Falmouth, Cumberland County, Maine. The Smelt Hill Dam and associated electric generating facilities were damaged by a flood in October 1996. The previous exemptee, Central Maine Power (CMP), decided not to rehabilitate the project, and sold it to the MDMR for the purpose of removing the dam to restore the aquatic ecosystem of the lower Presumpscot River.1 The dam removal would be done by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District (COE), as an Aquatic Ecosystem Restoration Project under section 206 of the Water Resources Development Act of 1996 (PL 104-303).
