Abstract/ Summary

Two dams are proposed on the St. John River in northern Maine: Dickey, a high earth filled dam immediately above the confluence of the Allagash with the St. John, will have an installed generating capacity of 760 MW; and Lincoln School Dam, 11 miles downstream, a capacity of 70 MW. These dams are scheduled for completion during the mid 1980's. The U.S. Corps of Engineers, New England Division, has been allocated funds to design the project and prepare their own environmental impact statement. This report (Transmission Reconnaissance Studies) discusses alternative transmission facilities needed to connect the project with the New England grid, and describes the study area involved. It supplements the Transmission System Planning Study prepared by the Department of Interior (DOI) (February 1977) and the Assessment of Alternative Power Transmission Corridors prepared by VTN Consolidated (VTN) of Boston Mass., for the Dickey-Lincoln School Lakes project.
