Perhaps self-evident, but one notable lessonlong-term. Our initial decision to design "cost-effective" ently scrapped by NOAA and that NOAA had shifted its focus towards the Penobscot Riveren for very high quality projects like ours, and regulators. However, after some reflection, some Project Team members felt a major goal revision was warranted. The major lt, correcting passage problems at Bristol ccess to one of the largest aggregations of cost on the order of $150k-$200k. That was morm. The f
