The project was a community effort and completed in partnership with dedicated citizens who worked together to achieve the vision of the Walton’s Mill Park. The dam removal and park redevelopment were supported by the Town of Farmington, Atlantic Salmon Federation, NOAA Fisheries, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Maine Department of Marine Resources. Support was also provided by Maine Department of Environmental Protection, Farmington Water Department, Maine Natural Resources Conservation Program, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, Maine Outdoor Heritage Fund, Trout & Salmon Foundation, The Nature Conservancy, and several other private foundations.
The Town of Farmington, Atlantic Salmon Federation and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are part of the Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative's Climate Change Observatory Network, a photo monitoring program designed to work with environmental organizations and communities to assist with the observation, measurement and documentation of long-term climate change trends and climate adaptation projects.
