Welcome to your Stream Habitat Viewer. The Stream Habitat Viewer was created to enhance statewide stream restoration and conservation efforts. The Viewer provides a starting point for towns, private landowners, and others to learn more about stream habitats across the state. How it works. The Viewer displays habitats for several stream-dependent species important to Maine’s economy, ecology, and way of life. It also displays locations of dams and public road crossings, which can act as barriers to the movements of fish and wildlife. Where aging dams and road crossings block fish passage, funding is sometimes available to help find solutions. Use the "Contacts" list to learn more about the habitats displayed, funding sources, and Stream-Smart crossings. The Viewer helps bring people together to restore and conserve Maine’s natural heritage while looking for opportunities to ease the financial burdens of road and dam owners.
