Implemented with assistance from the Cumberland County Soil & Water Conservation District
Develop and implement a cost-effective, environmentally-responsible, and equitable plan for restoring and protecting Long Creek and its watershed.
The Long Creek Restoration Project began in 2007 as a collaborative, community-based initiative convened by the City of South Portland and led by a Steering Committee made up of representatives from the four Long Creek watershed municipalities (South Portland, Portland, Westbrook, and Scarborough), area businesses, non-profit organizations, and state agencies. The City of South Portland obtained a grant from United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to partner with the other watershed municipalities and individual stakeholders in this effort.
The next Long Creek Watershed Management District Board of Directors' Meeting is scheduled for June 24, 2021 at 9:00a.m. Due to COVID-19, the meeting will be held remotely by way of internet video conference.
