Update Volume


Update Issue


The Maine Department of Environmental Protection proposes to amend Code Me. R. §§600, 685, 686, and 691 regarding oil discharges, transfers, and storage. The amendments would revise definitions to make them consistent with the underlying statute, combine the Maine Coastal and Inland Surface Oil Clean Up Fund and the Ground Water Oil Clean Up Fund to create the Maine Ground and Surface Water Clean-up and Response Fund, and clarify the process for refunding certain fees, among other changes. Written comments will be accepted until 5 pm on January 16, 2016. No public hearing is scheduled at this time. See http://www.maine.gov/sos/cec/rules/notices/2015/121615.html.
