Category: Development and the Harpswell Environment

Some of the most frequent requests from readers are for a report on development in Harpswell and how it affects the town's natural resources, as well as a report on groundwater in a place where some never know whether their wells will produce an adequate supply of potable water.

We combined these issues and related concerns for the Anchor's first special section, which we're calling "Development and the Harpswell Environment."

The Anchor will have more special reports to come. To share ideas for future topics, email
