In the spring of 2015, the Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District started administration of the Phillips Lake Watershed Protection Project- Phase II "319" grant from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to continue our nonpoint source pollution iwork in the Phillips Lake watershed. 

The grant helps to pay for projects on private roads, town roads, and at private residences and provides free technical assistance for road, driveway, and erosion issues from the Conservation District (normally $50/hr).  Phillips Lake watershed residents are also serving on the Steering Committee to help guide education and outreach efforts in the watershed.  This grant goes through the fall of 2016.
