Aaron Usher is an archiaval photographer that was hired to take historic photos of the site prior to any disturbance. The State has strict standards of documentation that is required for altering historic structures. Before work on the site could begin, we had to wait for approval of the photos from RIHHPC. Not only is Shannock a historic district, but the road bridge adjacent to the dam is on RIDOT's list of scenic highways. Making the RIDOT permitting process extremely time consuming.
