HEAD TIDE — For decades, springtime high water flowing through the Head Tide Dam on the Sheepscot River has kept species of migrating fish pinned in the pool below the dam. The speed and volume of the water flowing through two openings in the dam is high enough that shad, Atlantic salmon, alewives and other species of river herring can’t move upstream through that velocity barrier to their spawning grounds until the flow abates.

oh isn't this just wonderful. I hope that who ever get to destroy another historical land mark, has more respect for the land owners then the masshole's that did Cooper's mills damn.
