    Brookfield currently has almost an 11 foot range they can control the lake levels, 104.2 - 93.4 above sea level. No other lake around us or if any in Maine operate beyond a 6-7 foot range.

    FYI,
    Diane and I were able to get about (100) flyers out meeting neighbors face to face on Graham Lake or we wedged the flyers, hopefully wind tight, in door jams.
    We hit the west side of the lake starting at the Green Lake Hatchery, further up on Peninsula Road, then Whitmore Rd, Mildred, Tannery Brook, Morrison and Silby. We were also able to post some flyers at the Otis Town Hall and Mariaville Town Hall. If anyone knows people outside those areas or your neighbors are possibly snowbirds and you have their address, please pass on the info on.
    We've also met a few neighbors without PC's, I'm not sure of the solution for that issue since we rely so much on electronics for communication.

    Agency communication to date;
    DEP, Kathy Howatt, as noted on the flyer, stated the DEP has their own petition process that would require each town to certify signers owning waterbody property. The petition DSF had at the 10-25-17 meeting doesn't require certification of the signatures if submitted.
    My FERC contact stated the actual P-2727 petition, filed federally, as titled on the DSF 10-25-17 handout noted above, mentioned there should be a project manager assigned to the Graham Lake issues. FERC's Sarah McKinley had said this past Monday I should hear from the project manager within a week. I'll follow up Tuesday.
    DSF's Dwayne Shaw, who directed the 10-25-17 meeting at Beech Hill School, is a wealth of information.
    He is assisted out of the Columbia Falls office by Brett and Tracy. More information has been asked from them as to what details are needed for submittals.
    one specific item they are asking for is what water levels the property owners are suggesting to go back to the power company and FERC. The current outdated dam license has the major and minor above sea level at 104.2' and 93.4'. I believe we all saw the results of the estimated 93.8' or so in October. Supposedly, the levels are monitored and controlled at the Graham Lake dam remotely.
    I for one know wildlife and the fishery has been damaged by the extremely low level witnessed this year. There is nothing stable at this point besides a bed of muck when it rains and muddy brown water when its windy.
    As Diane noted earlier, we need high and low water level pictures along with problems caused by the same that you've witnessed or experienced.
    I'll pass any agency communication on to all as I receive it.
    Anyone have a contact at the Ellsworth American?
