The Wilder Dam over the Connecticut River, pictured here in December 2017. Its owner, Great River Hydro, is proposing changing water discharge levels from its three Vermont dams, potentially to the benefit of river acquatic habitats.

The company that runs the hydroelectric dams along the Connecticut River unveiled a new proposal this week, and if approved, it would change how much and how often the company discharges water from three dams in the valley. News editor John Gregg from the Valley News covered the story.
