Region needs Susquehanna hydropower provided by York Haven, Safe Harbor, Holtwood and Conowingo Dams

 

→ Region needs Susquehanna hydropower – Cecil Daily

My understanding is that prior to the removal of all four dams the toxic sludge behind them would have to be dredged out. This dredging will have to be done eve if the dams are not removed, so if the dams were to be removed the dredging would not be an “extra” expense.

That being said, the question of the removal of the dams is a large and multi-faceted one and this article brings up some valid points on the side of keeping the dams in place.
