Isle au Haut Project Status Table

Thanks to our collaboration with Maine Seacoast Mission and the Isle au Haut community, the Healthy Water Healthy Aging project has been successful on Isle au Haut! Below are the running statistics for project participation and the results for what our drinking water samples are showing. Check back in to see how this project grows and what we find together!

Isle au Haut has the unique experience of being half Acadia National Park and half privately owned by a small but thriving community. Named in French meaning “high island”, Isle au Haut is the traditional territory of the Penobscot people. Located in Penobscot Bay, a significant amount of Isle au Haut residents lobster fish as a primary occupation. Isle au Haut has a protected working waterfront, further supporting how important fishing and maritime occupations are to Isle au Haut. The year-round population numbers around 54, growing to over 250 during the summer season.
