Ogunquit River Restoration Project

The Ogunquit Conservation Commission, the Town of Ogunquit, FB Environmental Associates, and Maine DEP are working together on a Phase I initiative to improve water quality and reduce bacteria levels in the Ogunquit River watershed and at its public beaches.

The Ogunquit River watershed is approximately 21 square miles located within the towns of Ogunquit, South Berwick, York and Wells. The Ogunquit River is joined by multiple tributaries, including Tatnic Brook and Green Brook, before entering into more developed areas in the Town of Ogunquit. The portion of the river downstream of the Route 1 crossing is tidal. It flows through salt marshes before emptying into the Gulf of Maine behind Ogunquit’s barrier beach.
