Purpose:
The purpose of this project is to significantly reduce soil erosion and polluted runoff sources to Little Sebago Lake, foster long-term stewardship, and, ultimately, improve water quality.

This project offers free technical assistance to landowners, towns,  and private road associations in order to address erosion problems.  In addition, the Casco Bay Youth Conservation Corps works in the watershed to install erosion controls during the summer.  Financial assistance is also available to help cover the cost of improvements.

Improvements at the property pictured below were cost shared with the landowner.  The access point to the Lake (left) was severely eroding due to foot traffic.  A winding path was installed and the bare soil was vegetated and mulched (right).
