30 Mile River Watershed Association
In 2008, local stakeholders formed the 30 Mile River Watershed Association (30MRWA) to preserve, improve and protect land and water quality in this watershed encompassing over 20 of the more pristine lakes and ponds in Central Maine, which form a chain named the 30 Mile River. The Association’s work focuses on preventing invasive aquatic species introduction, preventing pollution from stormwater runoff, and promoting environmentally-friendly recreation. 30MRWA formed to help the region’s small towns, lake associations, and land trusts provide a unified response to threats from development and invasive plants. 30MRWA is a public-private collaboration of eight lake associations, six towns, and two land trusts that pool resources to enhance their individual efforts. Each has representation on our 17-member Board (members listed above as core group).
