Connecticut River Basin Phase 1 Assessment

The purpose of the Phase 1 Scoping Assessment for the Connecticut River basin was to identify direct and indirect hydropower-environmental opportunities aat site and sub-basin scales. The BSOA National Steering Committee selected the Connecticut River basin for a Scoping Assessment because the basin has good potential for powering non-powered dams, opportunities to improve habitat connectivity, and challenging environmental issues. In addition, the strong stakeholder and community engagement has resulted in solid foundational science and high data richness.
