The Casco Bay Estuary Project has funneled funds into a number of scientific studies, including how to clean Falmouth's stormwater before it hits the bay and studies of dioxin and tin pollution. The project hands out small grants to towns and groups doing the sorts of individual projects that make a big difference on the local level, and has a cadre of around 140 volunteers who keep vigil over an important natural resource. The CBEP is 75 percent funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which has pledged four more years of support. The Republican takeover of Congress has some observers concerned about future funding for the CBEP and companion projects like the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Gulf of Maine Project.
