"It may be of interest to our readers to know that the duties of the Hydraulic Maintenance crew carry them, occasionally, to the more remote sections of our territory where we maintain and operate storage dams. One of Mr. [Fred] Murphy's duties is to make a periodic trip to three remote storage dams on the Piscataquis River namely, Schoodic, Seboois, and Endless Dams. There are no travelled ways to these dams and he makes the trip on foot, carrying with him a pack and camping out in the woods over night. These trips take anywhere from three days to a week, depending on the work required and weather conditions."
Many photographs show hydraulic equipment used in the late 1930s, early 1940s by the company as well as on-location photos at Treworgy Dam at Ellsworth Falls, Veazie, and in Milford.
