Dam bill a first for Esty, Murphy

Jun 24th, 2014 | By | Category: Energy

The House gave final passage Monday to a bill to enable the Connecticut town of Canton to refurbish two dams on the Farmington River — one of them first built as a grist mill in the late 1700s, the other in 1837 to power machinery for the Collins Co., a maker of axes that has been defunct since the 1960s.

The “renewed” dams and powerhouses are expected to produce enough renewable electricity to serve more than 1,500 local homes.
