The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this month will issue a draft Environmental Impact Statement, a document required by federal regulations governing the renewal of the dam's operating license. Neither side will predict what the report will say, but some observers say Edwards Dam could be economically defunct when a contract between Central Maine Power Co. and the dam's owners expires in December 1998. Details.
