Public Meetings on Water Quality Re-Classification Proposals

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 12:35:52 EDT

Maine's water classification law is designed to protect, restore and maintain water quality. The law establishes the Legislature's water quality goals for every water body based on Maine's tiered classification system (Riverine Classes AA, A, B and C and Marine Classes SA, SB and SC). Maine law directs the Board of Environmental Protection to review water classifications and, as appropriate, to propose upgrades in classification to the Legislature, who makes the final determination of classification for the State. The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency must ultimately give final approval to any changes made by the State of Maine.

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection (Department) has received proposals to change the water quality classification for a number of rivers and streams around the State. Following internal review, the Department has developed documentation containing its initial recommendations on all proposals. At the meetings noted above, the Department offers the public an opportunity to receive an overview of the proposals and to provide input. Public comments may also be submitted electronically until June 5, 2018. A complete list of re-classification proposals the Department received, and its recommendations for action, is available at http://www.maine.gov/dep/water/monitoring/classification/reclassification.html
