Maine Revised Statutes

§1391. Declaration of policy

The Legislature finds and declares it to be the policy of the State, consistent with its duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, to establish a coordinated statewide program to protect drinking water wells from contamination by oil or hazardous waste. The Legislature further finds that spills of oil and hazardous waste pose a significant risk to groundwater quality and that the handling of those substances near drinking water wells should be restricted to reduce the risk of contamination.
