‘Water We Doing?’

The town of Gray is one of 54 communities awarded money from Gov. Janet Mill’s Community Resilience Partnership. The nearly $50,000 grant will help the town plan for, raise awareness of and change behavior related to climate change in Gray’s nine main watersheds.

The town Resiliency Committee submitted a grant application based on their project called “Water We Doing?” to help create a Watershed Management Plan. The committee will also use the funds for outreach and educational activities for the community.

The Resiliency Committee is looking for volunteers to join or otherwise help with resiliency initiatives. It meets virtually every fourth Monday at 5 p.m. For more information, email, call 657-3339 or go to
