Help us Care for the Waters of Midcoast Maine
We are currently working on evaluating the proposed salmon farm project to be built on the bank of the Little River in Belfast, Maine. Your contribution comes at a critical time. Nordic Aquafarms recently submitted their application for a permit to discharge waste into Penobscot Bay near Belfast and Northport, and Upstream Watch is beginning analysis of the data included in the form. We have retained a legal advisor to help us participate effectively in the permitting process and are consulting with knowledgeable professionals to evaluate the project’s impact. As a new organization we do not have a “nest-egg” in place, so every dollar we receive is crucial to obtaining accurate and unbiased technical information in time to respond to Nordic Aquafarm’s permitting requests. Your confidence in our new organization gives us the means and the determination to move forward. Upstream Watch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
