Download license summary for the Eel Weir project.

The project is located at the outlet of Sebago Lake on the Presumpscot River in Cumberland County, Maine. The Eel Weir Project is located at Sebago Lake near the cities of Standish and Windham, in Cumberland County, about 14 miles northwest of Portland, Maine.  The Presumpscot River originates at the outlet of Sebago Lake and flows in a southeasterly direction for about 25 miles before emptying into the Atlantic Ocean at Casco Bay.

The project creates a 6,700-foot-long bypassed reach.  Minimum flows are released to the bypassed reach over the spillway or through the power canal’s three minimum flow gates.  There are no recreation facilities at the project.
