Unification News – It’s Official!

Please note:  as we continue working on the process of unification, you will begin to notice some changes.  All phone calls to the PWA office are being redirected through DRA.  We can be reached by calling either the PWA phone number or the DRA number, but you will reach the DRA office when you call either number.  The desk staff will connect your call to us.

Email addresses are changing as well. You may notice if you receive an email from us that the PWA staff now have DRA email addresses as well as their PWA ones.

And everyone that receives eblasts from PWA will now be receiving them only through DRA.  They will arrive in your inbox via Constant Contact.

Look for more exciting changes in the weeks ahead!

On September 25, PWA members along with members of Damariscotta River Association voted in favor of unifying to become a single conservation organization.

NEW DATE: The unification process has been slightly extended and is expected to be finalized no later than April 2019.

We know you may have questions. Read more about some of the things people have been asking  Questions & Answers.

The following documents will provide you with additional information.   Agreement of Intent to Unify ,   A Case for Unification  and   Member Statement
