Attention Androscoggin Lake shorefront landowners!

May 23, 2024

In late 2023, The Maine DEP, in conjunction with the US EPA, awarded the 30 Mile River Watershed Association a $149,730 federal grant to reduce pollution in the Androscoggin Lake watershed.

A portion of this grant provides cost-sharing opportunities and technical assistance from professional staff to landowners in the watershed – offering 10 matching grants to residential landowners of up to $1,500 each, which equals 50% of the total cost, available at a first-come, first-serve basis. Residential projects will include the installation of conservation practices such as planting shoreline buffers, stabilizing eroding soil, and installing infiltration devices to treat runoff before it enters the lake (among other solutions).

All property owners on Androscoggin Lake are eligible, but priority will be given to residential properties with erosion and runoff issues. To learn more or begin the grant process, contact Whitney at / (207) 860-4043.
