This report is written about the Kennebunk River System and the natural resources which affect it.

The report is written so a citizen can look up any one section and gain basic background information on that subject.  Some examples of these topics include: changes in growth in the three towns; commercial uses on the River; the relationship between wildlife diversity and development on the River; and background information on wetlands and their identification.

It is also a study with an end product.  A set of suggested protective ordinances co-ordinated between the three towns is given at the end of the study, as well as long-range planning recommendations.

This final report is meant to be a basic, practical guide for town officials and other interested citizens.  It describes the Kennebunk River System, the natural resources related to river systems (wetlands, floodplains, groundwater, aquifers, wildlife, and scenic diversity) and offers a package of suggested ordinances to protect river resources.
