Working Together to Protect Sebago Waters

Sebago Clean Waters’ mission is to protect water quality, community well-being, a vibrant economy, and the health of fish and wildlife in the Sebago watershed through voluntary forestland conservation. These forests create, filter, and sustain this area’s exceptionally pure water supply. 

SCW's goals are to: 

1) to conserve an additional 35,000 acres of land in the Sebago watershed (to conserve 25% of the land area) in the next 15 years; and 

2) to build a $15M Water Fund from new funding sources to support this conservation work.

Our mission is supported by the businesses, watershed landowners, municipal leaders, and private citizens who share this goal. The work we do together is inspired by the countless benefits the watershed provides to this region’s residents, visitors, and downstream water users.
