MS Water Pollution 1979-1996 6 boxes

Arranged alphabetically. These files record some of the difficulties encountered by Maine paper companies to re-license their hydroelectric dams, due largely to the stringent water quality standards required by the Clean Water Act. Indian land claims issues surrounding the licensing of the Bowater Dam in Maine are also documented here. Legislative efforts made to ensure safe drinking and ground water, such as the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1995 (S. 1316), the Ground Water Safety Act of 1987, and the Clean Water Act amendments of 1981 and 1987, are also documented in this subseries.
Records include copies of bills, Maine Congressional Delegation correspondence with the EPA and the Department of the Interior, news clippings, and research reports.

Access to records in this sub series is restricted until 2017. Consult the Special Collections Department for further information.
