Regulator extends license for dam on wild & scenic river despite agreement to remove it

Completed in 1922, the 3.6-megawatt Pine River dam is one of three dams along the Wisconsin-Michigan that We Energies agreed to remove as part of a historic 1997 deal with federal, state and nonprofit agencies.
