Abstract

Article on Maine's water policy, pointing out that many are concerned that water quality and quantity will become growing issues. To date, Maine's water policy has targeted quality, with measures such as pollution control limits for industrial mills and new rules for companies' disposal of wastewater. Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) officials recently proposed new rules to regulate water levels in lakes, streams and other surface water sources. David Courtemanch of the DEP says that increased irrigation and development put more demand on the public water supply.
