Linscott Brook in Brownfield

In 2016, the headwaters of Linscott Brook were reconnected to the brook in the Shepards River Watershed. Undersized twin culverts that were prone ice jams and flooding were replaced with an open bottom arch. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service did the initial survey and design work. Sebago TU obtained the funding needed through the Maine Water Bond Program. The Town of Brownfield executed the project. 

The Shepards River Watershed is prime wild/native brook trout habitat located west of Sebago Lake in the foothills of the White Mountains.
