Nordic Aquafarms, Belfast Water District Reveal plan to Protect 80 Acres

Nordic Aquafarms Inc. and the Belfast Water District announced they’ve reached a plan to forever preserve approximately 80 acres of undeveloped land around the Little River upper reservoir off of Herrick Road in Belfast.

The plan will be presented to Belfast City Council at its regular meeting Tuesday night.

In a news release sent to Mainebiz over the weekend, Nordic Aquafarms stated that while details remain to be worked out, the preliminary plan calls for the city of Belfast to acquire the property, subject to a deed restriction prohibiting any development on the property, including any commercial use of its water resources. The ultimate plan is to transfer the property to a land trust, said the company that’s proposing to build a land-based salmon farm in Belfast.
