Help us Care for the Waters of Midcoast Maine
Upstream Watch is currently appealing Nordic Aquafarms' proposed salmon factory, that, if built, would pump 7.7 million gallons of warm effluent directly off Brown's Point in Northport every day, would require 30,000 gallons of fresh water and 28 megawatts of power every day, and would destroy Belfast's Little River's lower forest, wetlands and streams. All at a time when we must create ecologically restorative food systems that support local communities and drastically reduce our carbon footprint.
