Abstract/ Summary

Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes evolved as a result of a study of the Development of Tidal Power at Passamaquoddy, a system of tidal bays studied since 1919 by both private and public engineers. The most comprehensive report was that completed by the International Joint Commission in April 1961 after 3 years of study and a cost of $3 million. The Commission concluded that the project was not economically feasible under the then existing conditions. At the request of President John F. Kennedy, the Commission report was reviewed to determine if the project was feasible in view of the advanced engineering techniques and prevailing economic conditions. In July 1963, a report was submitted to the President, which concluded that application of a different use-concept of power coupled with advanced engineering techniques would result in a favorable report.
