What’s this about? Supporting LD 178, a $5 million bond to protect our lakes, streams, rivers and coastal waters.

Why is it important? The bond doubles state funding for projects that keep our water safe and clean.

What should I do? Round up some friends and get to the plaza between the Capitol and the Cross Office Building by 11:45 next Wednesday. Wear blue to show legislators and the public that protecting water is really important. If you get into it, you can make signs about protecting lakes, loons and fish.

How long will it take? Less than an hour.

Tell me more about the bond. LD 178 will fund contractor jobs, improve road infrastructure and protect water resources. It directs $1 million a year for 5 years to the Department of Environmental Protection’s Nonpoint Source Pollution Program, a.k.a. the 319 Grant Program.

Anything else I should know? The Appropriations and Financial Affairs Committee will vote on the bond in mid-April. Please write your Senator and your Representative urging them to support LD 178.

You have a voice; our lakes don’t. They need you to speak for them.

Can I talk to someone about this? Yes, call us at (207) 495-2301 Monday- Friday 9am-5pm.
