Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission is soliciting Consultant Services

The Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission is soliciting Consultant Services to assist in the identification of sources of phosphorus input to Lake Auburn that may be originating in the Townsend Brook Watershed. Based upon years of water sampling near the Townsend Brook/Lake Auburn confluence, evidence suggests that the phosphorus level originating in the watershed exceed normal background levels.

Scope of services will involve field investigation of the watershed to identify potential sources of phosphorus input. Work may include contact with abutters to gain knowledge of site specific conditions. The final product to the Commission will be a report that outlines findings, and suggestions for follow-up.

Consultant must have extensive experience in Field Investigation of a similar nature, Environmental Sciences, and Water Chemistry.

To be considered for this project, please contact Mary Jane Dillingham, Lewiston/Auburn Water Quality Director at 333-6665, or email at mjdillingham@awsd.org  by Friday June 30.
