The mission of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council is to continuously improve environmental quality, encourage stewardship, and promote healthy and prosperous communities in the Androscoggin Watershed.
This is achieved through our 5 Goals
About the River: The Androscoggin flows for nearly 170 miles, beginning at Lake Umbagog on the Maine/New Hampshire border, continuing south through northern New Hampshire, heading east through western Maine, then turning south again before joining with the Kennebec in Merrymeeting Bay and emptying into the Atlantic. It has a rich geological and human history. Having once been rated as one of the most polluted rivers in the country, it served as the inspiration for the Clean Water Act and now boasts great fishing, wildlife habitat, and recreation opportunities. The Androscoggin River Watershed Council encourages collaboration among industry, conservation groups, landowners, and other interests to ensure that the Androscoggin continues to be a healthy asset to the communities on its banks and the wildlife it supports.
All environmental programs continue to function with
construction of improved fish passage projects in New Hampshire and
Water Quality Sampling and other programs in Maine. Sign up for the Second Nature Challenge and mark your calendars for the ARWC Annual Conference October 7th 2021.
