FUNDED! A regional septic study for our watershed

May 10, 2023

Last week, the Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund (MOHF) Board voted unanimously to fund our application to complete a Regional Environmental Risk Assessment and Septic System Database for the entire 30 Mile River Watershed. Project partners include Maine DEP and several watershed towns. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting new project in the coming months!

The Maine Legislature established MOHF in 1996 in response to a grassroots effort led by Maine Audubon and the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine. MOHF helps fund critical wildlife and conservation projects throughout Maine using revenue generated exclusively by a dedicated instant lottery ticket distributed by the Maine State Lottery. Tickets are available at most convenience stores, gas stations, and other outlets where Maine State Lottery tickets are sold.
