Central Maine Power Company and NECEC Transmission, LLC (Licensees) have informed the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) of their intention to resume construction of the transmission corridor on August 3, 2023 in Lewiston. As required by the November 23, 2021, License Suspension Order, the Department received formal notice from CMP and NECEC on July 27, 2023.

Today, Commissioner Loyzim advised licensees that construction may resume on Aug. 3, that all permit conditions remain in effect, and that Third-Party Inspectors must conduct inspections at least weekly or after any substantial rain event, defined as 0.5" of rain in a 24-hour period.

The License Suspension Order requires no further notification to resume construction in other locations within the permitted corridor.
