Augusta – On October 23, 2017 at 6:00 P.M. at the Scarborough Town Hall, 295 U.S. Route 1, Scarborough, Maine, Matthew Hassler and Robert

Willette and the Department of Marine Resources will hold a public scoping session on a proposed aquaculture lease application to raise American/Eastern oysters using suspended culture techniques in three proposed locations.  Two of the three proposed locations are in the Nonesuch River, Scarborough, Maine, and the other is in the Spurwink River on the border of Scarborough and Cape Elizabeth, Maine. 

 The session provides an opportunity for the public to learn about the proposed lease and to have an informal discussion with the applicant about this proposal.  A scoping session provides for open discussion and is not an adjudicatory hearing.
