summit

Sponsored by Community Water Justice, Sierra Club of Maine, and The Penobscot  Nation

 

Water is the most vital resource needed for life on earth.

Here in Maine we are blessed with a plentiful supply of water, but there are growing threats to the quality and quantity of our precious resource.

Those threats include:

  •  commercial water extraction
  •  challenges to the rights of the Penobscot people to protect and manage the Penobscot River
  •  landfill expansion (Juniper Ridge),
  •  east-west corridor proposals
  •  forestry practices
  •  mining
  •  and more.

 

To effectively address these serious threats, it’s imperative that concerned citizens and groups addressing water issues share information and experiences and coordinate efforts toward protecting our water resources.To effectively address these serious threats, it’s imperative that concerned citizens and groups addressing water issues share information and experiences and coordinate efforts toward protecting our water resources.To that end a number of individual water activists have organized a summit on water security and rights.
