Clamming in Georgetown: Past, Present & Future

Water quality of our rivers, wetlands, and coastal areas is vital to recreational and commercial shellfish harvesting in Georgetown and the entire region. This program will focus on Georgetown’s important clamming resources and the Kennebec Estuary Shellfish Area Project*. KELT’s Ruth Indrick and Becky Kolak will lead the discussion.


*The Kennebec Estuary Shellfish Area Project is a Maine Department of Marine Resources (DMR) project to study and evaluate the relationship between water quality and shellfish meat quality on the shellfish flats of Georgetown and five other lower Kennebec River towns. The Project is managed by the Midcoast Council of Governments and coordinated by the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) in partnership with DMR and shellfish conservation committees from Georgetown, Phippsburg, Arrowsic, Woolwich, West Bath, and Westport Island.
