The Rum River Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy is a management plan for the Rum River, and all the lakes and streams in its watershed. The focus is on water quality and overall ecological health. It includes strategies for fixing impaired waters that do not meet state water quality standards, as well as protecting good quality waterbodies. The plan is being developed through 2016.
Input is invited, and most useful if received before June 15, 2016. We are looking for management strategies for specific waterbodies. As the planning process procedes, draft management strategies will be posted to this website.
