Welcome to the Androscoggin!

The mission of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council is to continuously improve environmental quality, encourage stewardship and promote healthy and prosperous communities in the Androscoggin Watershed.

The Androscoggin flows for nearly 170 miles, beginning at Lake Umbagog on the Maine/New Hampshire border, continuing south through northern New Hampshire, heading east through western Maine, then turning south again before joining with the Kennebec in Merrymeeting Bay and emptying into the Atlantic.  It has a rich geological and human history.  Having once been rated as one of the most polluted rivers in the country, it served as the inspiration for the Clean Water Act and now boasts great fishing, wildlife habitat, and recreation opportunities.  The Androscoggin River Watershed Council encourages collaboration among industry, conservation groups, landowners, and other interests to ensure that the Androscoggin continues to be a healthy asset to the communities on its banks and the wildlife it supports.
