Protection & Restoration Strategy for the Scarborough Marsh Watershed (Prepared for Friends of Scarborough Marsh by Normandeau Associates, Inc. and Terence J. Dewan & Associates. 2002)
The Scarborough Marsh: Historical Impacts, Current Conditions, and Restoration Potential (Maine Audubon. 1999) This is the report that started it all! Shortly after the publication of Maine Audubon's report in 1999, a small group of concerned citizens and representatives from partner groups took the first steps to form the Friends of Scarborough Marsh.
Flooding and Erosion of Maine's Coastal Wetlands (Maine Sea Grant)
The Friends of the Scarborough Marsh (FOSM) has completed an eight month water quality study of Mill Brook, a tributary of the Nonesuch River. The project, focusing on a 1.7 mile stretch of the creek running from Sawyer Road, under US Rte 1 to the Eastern Trail, aimed to identify constraints the town faces in improving water quality to levels that would permit reopening clam flats for harvest. Overall, water quality was good, with one major exception: coliform bacteria rated as poor at all four sampling sites during every month except January, 2012.
