Water Stewardship

The ponds, river, and coast are the signature gems of the Pemaquid Peninsula. Matter of fact, the Pemaquid Peninsula is the only peninsula in Maine that has a freshwater system running down its center. No matter where you are on the Pemaquid Peninsula, you are within 3 miles of both freshwater and saltwater.

PWA’s water stewardship efforts have two main goals:

  1. the protection of water quality, and
  2. the prevention of the introduction of invasive aquatic plants.
