A collaborative, actionable plan for cleanup of mercury in the Penobscot River Estuary.

ENVIRONMENTAL RENEWAL

Beneficial Environmental Projects have been selected for funding.

 

Please visit the Project Trust webpage here for more information.

In 2022, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maine approved a Consent Decree that requires Mallinckrodt US LLC (Mallinckrodt) to pay a minimum of $187 million (and possibly an additional $80 million) to remediate mercury contamination in the Penobscot River Estuary.

 

A total of $20 million must be provided for beneficial environmental projects intended to benefit the public and environment, under the Consent Decree.

Two trusts were created to accelerate recovery of Maine’s largest river and provide meaningful and lasting benefit for the surrounding communities and environment.
