The Spruce Creek Watershed Restoration Project

Welcome to the Town of Kittery’s website on Protecting Kittery Waters. Our current focus centers on cleaning up, slowing down and limiting stormwater pollution from both residences and businesses, mostly in the Spruce Creek Watershed. However, the resources on this site apply to anyone – we all live in a watershed and we can all be part of the solution to pollution. We encourage you to explore this website to learn more about our watersheds, their history, the wildlife they support, and our potential impacts on them (good and bad). And if you’re willing to help out, we always need help stuffing envelopes, hosting learning parties, planting plants, and much more – just contact us if you’d like to get involved.

The Town of Kittery also does work to meet the standards of the Clean Water Act under the MS-4 Ruling. The Kittery Stormwater project website offers information about the MS-4 General Permit, Kittery’s responsibilities, and links to more resources.
