Please provide feedback on Draft Objectives and Key Actions by May 29, 2018, so that the York River Study Committee can consider input before its next draft in June. To provide input on any drafts, please contact the York River Study Coordinator (email jh.yorkriver@gmail.com or call 207-641-9122) or attend the upcoming York River Study Committee meeting, which is Tuesday, May 22, at 5:30 p.m. at the Grant House in York, to share your ideas or listen to further discussion on the plan.  Please indicate if you plan to attend this meeting by emailing Jennifer Hunter in advance.

The draft stewardship objectives and key actions are intended to protect important watershed resources for current and future generations. These recommendations have been developed by the York River Study Committee over the last year after extensive review of watershed data, reports and comprehensive plans, and discussions with community groups, resource experts, and watershed residents.  Much background information, including detailed notes and presentations from meetings and reports from new studies, is included on the Study Documents page.
