In the spring of 2014, the Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District started administration of the Toddy Pond Watershed Restoration Project "319" grant from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to help reduce nonpoint source pollution issues in the Toddy Pond watershed. 

The grant helps to pay for projects on private roads and at private residences and provides free technical assistance for road, driveway, and erosion issues from the Conservation District (normally $50/hr).  Toddy Pond watershed residents are also serving on the Steering Committee to helped to create an Education and Outreach Plan for the watershed and conducting a knowledge survey to gauge awareness levels of pollution issues around the lake. This grant goes through the fall of 2016.

For more information on this grant or if you would like to serve on the Steering Committee for the grant, please call the District office at 667-8663.
