Stream Corridor Surveys 

The US Environmental Protection Agency awarded Bangor and Hampden grants to create a Watershed Management Plan. Sucker Brook is a small stream that runs from Bangor, underneath I-95 and I-395 and then into Hampden. The grant money will allow the towns to start stream corridor surveys and watershed surveys.Wynne Guglielmo is the Bangor Environmental Coordinator, she explains the survey process, “we’ll be looking for the shape of the stream, any types of erosion, is there any life, what type of life is living in it, whether aquatic, amphibian, or fish.” Gugliemo says. Surveyors will also be looking at the area around the streams to see what kind of effects it may be having on small streams.Twenty volunteers are needed to help with the surveys, and training will be provided. Both towns are holding info-meetings to explain the survey process to residents.Hampden- Tuesday, June 18th from 6:30pm to 8:30pm in the Community Room at the Hampden Municipal Building.Bangor- Wednesday, June 19th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm in the Senior Room at Bangor Parks and Rec.
