Initial analysis suggests that the overall water quality in the Meduxnekeag River is relatively good. In the absence of historical water quality data, it is not possible to reach definitive conclusions on the state of the system in the past, but discussions with residents and stakeholders indicate a widespread perception that Meduxnekeag water quality was much lower in the middle to late 20th century than is the case today.
There are opportunities for further improvement in water quality, mainly through addressing point source and non-point source pollution identified in this report. We are working on these through our long term action plans.
