Goosefare Brook Watershed Management Plan
The Final Goosefare Brook WBMP was recently completed and accepted by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection (MDEP) in May 2016. The WBMP outlines a two phase plan over a 15-year period to implement structural and non-structural stormwater retrofit / enhancement measures to improve Goosefare Brook’s water quality and aquatic habitat to attain Class B standards. With the MDEP and City acceptance of the Final Goosefare Brook WBMP, the City will be in a position to begin the implementation phase of the project, which includes the formation of the Goosefare Brook Restoration Committee (GBRC). The GBRC will serve as a steering committee for the implementation of the WBMP.
