The Salmon Falls Watershed Collaborative has been awarded the 2012 U.S. Water Prize by the Clean Water America Alliance.
On February 21, the Clean Water America Alliance announced six winners of the 2012 U.S. Water Prize for watershed-based approaches that innovate, integrate, and educate toward water sustainability. Per the announcement, the selection of the Salmon Falls Watershed Collaborative as one of the U.S. Water Prize winners highlights the importance of inter-jurisdictional partnerships to protect and sustain drinking water supplies. This inter-state collaborative between Maine and New Hampshire unites local, state and federal partners to protect forests and reduce pollution from existing land uses and anticipated development.
