On this page the Community Development Department will post information relating to our work in the Cape Neddick River Watershed. Data collected by the Town and others shows a pattern of pollution which is concerning to us all, and we are commited to achieve the Town's goal: eliminating the need to post advisories or close public beaches due to water pollution (Comprehensive Plan, Policy #5.2.5).
Please check back in periodically because I expect the content to change frequently.

Cape Neddick River Water Quality Restoration Plan
The York Community Development Department and Watershed Solutions, Inc. will be holding a stakeholder meeting Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. at Village Elementary School Gymnasium. The consulting team will give an overview of their work to date, and their plans for 2012. Property and business owners in the watershed, as well as interested parties are encouraged to attend. Feedback from the public is welcome.
The Cape Neddick River Association approached the Board of Selectmen in early 2011, asking the Board to commit to help clean up the pollution in the Cape Neddick River by funding several tasks relating to water quality. Instead, the Board of Selectmen directed staff to solicit proposals for a full-blown water quality restoration plan. This meeting is where you can start to get involved in the solutions.
We think it will be worth giving up an evening of TV – even if there will be new episodes of The Middle and Modern Family! Please join us!
