A town appointed citizen committee in Whitefield (Jane Chase, Chuck Vaughn, Louie Sell, Leslie McCormick, Barry Tibbetts, Scott Higgins, and Herb Hartman) met monthly to consider all options for the future of the Coopers Mills Dam and surrounding land. This included consideration of repairing the dam, looking at the potential for small hydropower; and removing the dam and providing alternative sources of water for fire protection in the Coopers Mills Village. As part of this process the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF) and the Midcoast Conservancy (MC) provided a number of experts, consultants, and engineers to help in the committees work.
