Additional Information


Cruise Ship Task Force


The goal of the Cruise Ship Study Task Force was to prioritize and make recommendations to the Bar Harbor Town Council.
The Task Force met with the Town Council every 8 weeks to submit a verbal and written progress report. A final written report was submitted, read the report online.

Cruise Ship Management Study


The Cruise Ship Study Task Force was working to implement the destination management plan. One of the implementation recommendations is to continue water quality monitoring in the harbor when cruise ships are anchored or in transit. More insight can be gained by reading the initial proposal and cruise ship reports. These documents are part of a previous monitoring and study effort from the former MDI Water Quality Coalition.
