Warren Ray Moore and Walter w Heatley James Thorley state vow commander Arthur Parry state Dav commander and Robert Ter Julian and j. W. Macquade of Burlington. By Ernest g. Warren Washington apr new England congressmen ask president Kennedy today to seek Canadas approval to harness the tides of Passamaquoddy and cobs Cook Bays Between new Brunswick and Maine. The object to generate an estimated million kilowatts of electric Energy. Secretary of the Interior Stewart l. Udall made Public yesterday his departments report that the Long pending project estimated to Cost $1 billion is economically and Engineer ugly feasible. Udall and the new englander formally present the report to Kennedy today at a White House ceremony. Udall told a news conference monday that if Canada agrees to the undertaking by the United states and Congress concurs with authority and Money it would be the nations most unique Power development. Udall urged that the president and the state department promptly initiate negotiations with Canada a necessary first step which Udall said he did not expect to be difficult since Canadian provinces would be permitted to share in Power and flood control benefits. Maine members of Congress who were Given an Advance look at the report asked by Kennedy a week ago said they found it a highly encouraging and indicated readiness to sponsor enabling legislation following Canadian approval. The report differs in a number of respects from a 1961 finding by the International joint commission inc a after a $3 million study directed by Congress that the project was physically possible but uneconomic under then prevailing conditions. Morgan d. Dubrow chairman of the departmental study group said that since the inc conclusion there had been a virtual revolution in the Power Industry that materially changed the picture with respect to Quaddy. He listed As favourable developments the horizontal Axial flow Turbine deemed cheaper and More efficient that Standard vertical types High voltage transmission lines and the need for greater peaking Power in the Region. Another major change is in the proposed location of a supplemental Power dam and Reservoir on the St. John River in Maine. The inc had held that the tidal project required a hydroelectric Plant on the St. John and recommended a site at Rankin rapids below the Confluence of the St. John with the Allagash River. Conservationists sportsmen and lumbering interests protested that a dam at the rapids site would flood the Allagash Region and wipe out a valuable wilderness area. The current recommendation is for a dam and Reservoir at what is known As the Dickey site on the St. John upstream from entry of the Allagash with a regulating dam and Reservoir at the Lincoln school site. These Power dams and reservoirs the report said would leave the Allagash unharmed and enable Congress to incorporate the Region into an Allagash National rive Way under the National Park service. United states interest in developing the Passamaquoddy project As a source of perpetual Power dates Back to 1919 when Dexter p. Cooper an american Engineer made the first proposal. In 1935 a Passamaquoddy Bay tidal project commission of the . Federal emergency administration of Public works recommended construction of an initial cobs Cook Bay project ultimately to embrace Passamaquoddy Bay. Army engineers were allowed $7 million to initiate this development but work stopped in August 1936 when Congress failed to appropriate More Money. In 1941 the Federal Power commission reported the development could not compete successfully with the River hydroelectric Power then available in Maine. In 1948, the Canadian and . Governments asked the inc to review existing plans. In 1950 the inc concluded that economic feasibility of the project could be determined Only by exhaustive investigations. In 1956 the us under a $3 million Grant from Congress and $300,000 from Canada made the detailed study reported in 1961. It was this report which concluded that the undertaking was physically possible but not economically under existing conditions. The project now deemed justified on All scores contemplates a series of dams a about i it Miles in ally controlling the flow of immense tides secular to that area a into and from Quaddy and cobs Cook Bays from one Bay to the other.
