FREEPORT — The public is invited to join in a survey of the health of the Concord Gully Brook watershed beginning at 8 a.m. June 8.
The survey, a joint project of the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Cumberland County Soil and Conservation District and town, will identify sources of runoff in the creek from ditches, surface runoff and small streams.
Conservation District Project Manager Joe Anderson said Concord Gully Brook, which empties into the Harraseeket River, is considered impaired by state and federal standards.
The survey will cross private property bordering the brook. Property owners who do not want their land included in the survey should contact Anderson at 899-5957 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Potential volunteers should also contact Anderson. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Freeport Public Safety Building on Main Street for training from 8-10 a.m. Field work will conclude by 3 p.m.
