An Act To Revise Oil Spill Reporting Standards
Sec. 1. 38 MRSA §550, sub-§1, as repealed and replaced by PL 1991, c. 66, Pt. A, §18, is amended to read:
Sec. 2. 38 MRSA §550, sub-§1-A is enacted to read:
Current law provides that if a person discharges oil into or upon certain water bodies, lands adjacent to certain water bodies, public or private water supplies or sewers that person is not subject to fines or civil penalties if that person, in addition to taking other actions, reports the discharge. This bill exempts discharges of less than 10 gallons from the reporting requirement.
