The objectives of this project were twofold: First, a comprehensive land use inventory was undertaken to assist Maine DEP in developing a Phosphorus Control Action Plan (PCAP) and a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) report for the Little Cobbossee Lake watershed. Simply stated, a TMDL is the total amount of phosphorus that a lake can receive without harming water quality. Maine DEP, with assistance from the MACD Project Team, will address and incorporate public comments before final submission to the US EPA. Secondly, watershed survey work, including a shoreline and septic survey evaluation, was conducted by the Cobbossee Watershed District to help assess total phosphorus reduction techniques that would be beneficial for the Little Cobbossee Lake watershed. Watershed survey work included assessing direct drainage nonpoint source (NPS) pollution sites, inclusive of recommendations for future conservation work in the watershed to help citizens, organizations, and agencies restore and protect Little Cobbossee Lake.
