Welcome to the Urban Streams web site for knowledge exchange on urban streams in Maine.

Urban Streams — a Portfolio Project of Maine's Sustainability Solutions Initiative

Supporting more sustainable management of urban and urbanizing watersheds in Maine by:

  • Improving knowledge of the physical mechanisms of degradation and recovery in urban streams
  • Exploring the legal and non-legal methods for translating that biophysical knowledge into action.
  • Providing a forum for exchange of information about urban stream issues in Maine & beyond... research syntheses, case histories, publications, data, & more.
