To the editor:
As a member of the Bristol Dam Advisory Committee and former selectman, I feel it is imperative that the residents of Bristol should be fully informed of the findings of the dam committee. Our mission was to investigate, with the aid of the Wright-Pierce engineering firm, ways to increase fish migration to the headwaters of the Pemaquid River. As noted in the LCN for the past months, the committee has worked on three options.
All three options have been published with very little involvement by the town’s taxpayers. Therefore, I urge all interested residents to attend the public meeting being held on Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. at the school gym. This is your opportunity to ask questions and get a better understanding of each option.
The committee is not giving any recommendations. That will be the responsibility of the board of selectmen and voted on by the voters of Bristol.
