As part of the Penobscot River Restoration, the Howland Bypass project increased access to over 1,000 miles of habitat for 11 different species of sea-run fish, while retaining the Howland Dam and impoundment for the community to enjoy. The bypass channel enables fish to continue up the Piscataquis River, which meets with the Penobscot just after the channel.
