The Maine Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently sent out a five-year certification reminder to those who have a DEP Stormwater or Site Law permit issued on or after 2006.
This may affect more than just those who currently have these permits. If you are planning to purchase a property with existing development, you should find out if the property already has a DEP Stormwater or Site Law permit, and make sure the seller maintained and recertified the stormwater management system per the permit conditions. A permit transfer is required, and you—as the new owner—will have to assume the inspection and maintenance requirements.
For assistance with this or any of your stormwater needs, please visit the Maine DEP website and contact:
