Media Report on UMaine, UNH Beach Research Project

The Associated Press and Foster’s Daily Democrat reported on a $6 million grant from the National Science Foundation for the University of Maine and University of New Hampshire to conduct a three-year study to research how beaches and shellfish beds are closed due to bacteria. The project, known as the New England Sustainability Consortium, is being managed by the EPSCoR programs at UNH and UMaine, and aims to strengthen the scientific basis for management of beaches and shellfish harvesting. Boston.com, Kennebec Journal, MPBN and the Concord Monitor were among news organizations to carry the AP report.
