Some in Maine's clamming industry are organizing, forming groups that monitor water quality, re-seed clam flats and spend their evenings at committee meetings. The Cobscook Bay Clam Restoration Project has opened 2,000 acres of clam flats by finding and eliminating sources of pollution. The Georges River Clam Project has organized five towns to jointly manage the St. George River's once-bountiful flats. The seven-year cooperative effort between West Bath and Phippsburg ended when West Bath residents voted at town meeting to end the reciprocal harvest agreement.
