What projects are anticipated for 2020

Thank you for reading about the
319 Grant award information!

Hello to our friends in the Bauneg Beg Lake Watershed,
The York County Soil and Water Conservation District (YCSWCD) in partnership with the Bauneg Beg Lake Association (BBLA) are pleased to share with you that we have been awarded funding for a Bauneg Beg Lake Watershed Protection Phase 1 Grant. This grant will assist with implementation projects to protect water quality. This grant was awarded based on projects identified through the Watershed Survey conducted in 2018.
The YCSWCD and the BBLA are looking for volunteers to join the Steering Committee (SC).
What’s involved as a member of the SC:

If you would like to join the Steering Committee please contact BBLA at bbla.board@gmail.com or Jennifer Harris, project manager with the YCSWCD at (207) 324-0888 x 208; jharris@yorkswcd.org.
Steering committees are typically made up of folks that have an interest in protecting the lake including lake association members, landowners, municipal staff, educators, farmers, business owners, etc. No experience is necessary. A willingness to serve on the steering committee throughout the project is desired. The YCSWCD will provide staff time to oversee the project & provide technical assistance throughout the project.
Funding for this project, in part, has been provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act. The funding is administered by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection in partnership with EPA. EPA does not endorse any commercial products or services mentioned.
Sincerely,
BBLA and YCSWCD
