Testing of fish from the Androscoggin, Kennebec, Presumpscot, Salmon Falls and S
Testing of fish from the Androscoggin, Kennebec, Presumpscot, Salmon Falls and Sebasticook Rivers showed elevated levels of co-planar polychlorinated biphenyls. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection had the data earlier this year, and has been accused of trying to hide the figures by the Capital Weekly. DEP Commissioner Ned Sullivan said a steering committee was split on whether to include the coPCB data as part of the Dioxin Monitoring Program. The program is funded by the paper industry, wastewater treatment plants and textile mills, and paper industry representatives on the steering committee raised objections to the coPCB data's inclusion.
