To preserve, improve, and protect the land and water quality in the 30 Mile River watershed
- Prevent the introduction of invasive species through early interception, detection and public education
- Detect and prevent pollution from point and nonpoint sources
- Encourage responsible and environmentally friendly enjoyment of our lakes and ponds by promoting safe boating practices
Numerous town officials and lake association members in the 30 Mile River Watershed, from Kimball Pond down to the Androscoggin Dead Water, joined to form a non-profit corporation to protect and preserve the watershed. Vienna’s eight-year lake warden and courtesy boat inspection program was the local model, and the group sought out other organizations in Maine during its planning.
In January, 2008 the organization became a nonprofit corporation in Maine and in July of that year became a 501c3 federal nonprofit.
