Today we look to Augusta at a currently proposed amendment to a groundwater bill, which would consolidate power with the state concerning commercial water extraction. Yesterday the Department of Environmental Protection presented the 8 page amendment to the Natural Resources Committee, which would give the DEP the authority to govern commercial water extraction.
Today we speak with Emily Posner from the organization Defending Water In Maine, who is in Augusta right now.
