State of Maine's Environment 2009 

The State of Maine's Environment is a series of reports written by the Colby Environmental Policy Group, senior environmental policy majors at Colby College in Waterville, Maine.  This is the fifth State of Maine's Environment report created by students enrolled in ES 493: Environmental Policy Practicum.

The 2009 report examines four topics of importance to Maine:  Coastal and marine management, rivers and dams, organic agriculture, and sustainable communities.  For each issue, we explore the history of the topic, laws and regulations, stakeholders, the current state of the topic, future scenarios, and implications of our findings that we relate to the future state of the topic.  We conclude each chapter with recommendations for future policies.

To view a summary of the report, see the Executive Summary. To download the entire report as a PDF document, click here. To view individual chapters of the reports, click on the links below
