NRCM’s Clean & Healthy Waters Work

NRCM is Maine’s most effective nonprofit working statewide for protections for our state’s water resources. With an unmatched level of expertise, we harness the power of science and the voices of people who love Maine, pushing for laws that protect our environment. We engage citizens and businesses through events, online tools, and materials. Since 1959, NRCM has led efforts to keep Maine’s waters clean and beautiful. Over the last year, we:

√ Helped Communities Protect Water Resources We created “community toolkits” that provide essentials for establishing community-based sustainability efforts to ban or discourage single-use shopping bags and foam food containers. These efforts eliminate litter and reduce pollution in our waterways and along our coastline.

Defeated Efforts to Weaken Protections against Oil Spills Under current law, people who spill oil are protected from fines if they promptly notify the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). This allows DEP staff to respond quickly to spills, before they become an even bigger problem in the environment. Lobbyists from oil companies tried to weaken this good law, but failed thanks to the expertise of NRCM staff members. This victory underscores the importance of NRCM’s watchdog role, today and for the future.

Completed Restoration of Maine’s Mightiest River As a founding member of the Penobscot River Restoration Project, we completed construction of the Howland fish bypass on the Penobscot River, the last step in this world-renowned restoration project. Now, 11 species of sea-run fish have better access to 2,000 miles of Penobscot River habitat. By better connecting the Penobscot headwaters to the Gulf of Maine, the restored river provides major recreation opportunities and benefits to people, fish, and wildlife while maintaining energy production on the river.

Ensure Wetlands Protections This year, we helped defend a 350-acre southern Maine wetland against a push to exempt an inappropriate development from meeting two of Maine’s key environmental laws. These wetlands serve as important stopover and breeding habitat for dozens of species of migratory birds. We brought our scientific expertise to bear in this issue, along with NRCM member voices. We will continue to watchdog efforts to weaken laws protecting Maine’s wetlands.
