Roadside springs in Maine must be tested monthly under the federal Safe Drinking
Roadside springs in Maine must be tested monthly under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, and the water must be treated if it does not comply with federal standards. The Maine Department of Human Services' Bureau of Health has identified more than a dozen springs and notified a number of landowners about compliance. Brian Tarbuck of DHS defends the program, noting that the Maine Environmental Priorities Project ranked drinking water and water for domestic uses as the issues of greatest concern. DHS issued a recent report that lists six campgrounds and three municipalities that have failed to come into compliance with the law.
