Mainebiz reports on DMC infrastructure improvement

Mainebiz reported on the ongoing $5.2 million infrastructure improvement project at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center in Walpole. Construction includes upgrading the center’s flowing seawater system, renovating its oldest seawater laboratory and replacing its 50-year-old main pier. The improvements are funded by an award from the U.S. Economic Development Administration with matching funds from UMaine and state marine bond funds. “We’re bringing the laboratory into the 21st century,” said center Director Heather Leslie.
