For reference, Brookfield Renewable Partners L.P. is a publicly-traded limited partnership that owns and operates power assets, with corporate headquarters in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is 60% owned by Brookfield Asset Management with headquarters in Bermuda.

The owner of four dams along the Kennebec River is suing Maine’s Department of Marine Resources over proposed changes that could lead to the dams being removed.

The lawsuit, from a U.S. Subsidiary of Brookfield Renewable, is challenging a proposed amendment to the state’s river management plan, which would recommend stricter fish passage requirements. That amendment recommends the removal of two dams — and a study of the proposed removal of two other dams — from Waterville to Skowhegan.
