Title: Feasibility study of the Tremont Dam Power Project, Wareham, Massachusetts. Final report

Abstract

A study was conducted to establish the feasibility of restoring hydroelectric generation facilities to the Town-owned Tremont Dam in Wareham, Massachusetts on the Weweantic River. A head of 22 +- 2 ft is developed at the site. The power generated from the normal expected mean annual stream flow would be approximately 1,000,000 kWhr annually. It was concluded that this Project should be implemented as rapidly as possible since no environmental or other barrier exists to the restoration of hydroelectric facilities at Tremont Dam, and there are significant financial benefits to the Town. In addition, there are favorable possibilities for participation as part of state and federal Demonstration programs to further the cost-effective utilization of indigenous, renewable energy resources.
