Excerpt from "06-096 C.M.R. ch. 418: Maine Solid Waste Management Rules: Beneficial Use of Solid Wastes BASIS STATEMENT for amendments provisionally adopted January 9, 2018": 

An excerpt from Maine DEP’s response to comments on its updates to the rules governing the land application of sludge from January 2018.  DEP proposed changes to its sludge rules in late 2017 that, amongst other things, added standards for three PFAS chemicals.  This excerpt explains how DEP positively responded to industry requests to make the standards less strict.
