About 70 people attended an afternoon “scoping session” staged by Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) staffers Monday, Dec. 11, in the Kennebunk Town Hall auditorium, with another 50 turning out for a repeat session later that night. The event was a kickoff meeting that will ultimately lead to a FERC decision in 2020 on whether America First Hydro of Scarsdale, New York, will take over the hydro license on three Mousam River dams when the Kennebunk Light and Power District surrenders its license in 2022.
