Muddy rudder



Mousam and Kennebunk Rivers Alliance member Alicia Heyburn tests the waters just above the Kesslen Dam in Kennebunk on Thursday, Nov. 5, while the depth was dropped, revealing an office chair trapped in its murky bottom. The Kennebunk Light and Power District lowered the water level in order to test sediments in the riverbed, part of its effort to determine whether it should pursue federal relicensing of the dam, or remove it entirely. A study into the district’s options, now available on its website (www.klpd.org), will be the topic of a public meeting, to be held at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16, at the Kennebunk Town Hall auditorium.
