DEP Public Meeting on American Aquafarms

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection will hold a public meeting on American Aquafarms’ waste discharge applications on Thursday, October 28 from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM via Zoom. 


 (https://us06web.zoom.us/j/6928501126?pwd=blBEMDBlUTFKb3ZIbFN0NFVEaTl0dz09

Meeting ID: 692 850 1126 Passcode: 4gWhZz or via CALL IN # 1-929-205-6099 Meeting ID: 692 850 1126 Passcode: 10856)

This is a public meeting, not a formal public hearing.


Here is the difference as explained by DEP Compliance & Procedures Specialist Kevin Martin:

“Public meetings are not subject to the procedural requirements of the Maine Administrative Procedure Act or the Department's hearing rules. The purpose is to collect comments that become part of the record in a pending action; however, persons commenting on the application are not under oath and there is no opportunity for cross-examination. So strictly speaking, persons are commenting rather than submitting testimony. Members of the public do have an opportunity to speak or submit written testimony, which is considered part of the record subject to consideration by the Department.”


To help people prepare for the DEP meeting, FBU is hosting the first of what will become monthly information sessions the week before.

FBU Information Meeting on October 21st

Join us on Thursday, October 21 at 5:30 PM to talk about the upcoming DEP meeting on American Aquafarms. We’ll discuss how to best approach the meeting, including the kinds of comments and questions that will be most effective. We also plan to have some area lobstermen join us to talk about their history fishing the bay and the concerns that they have about the threats posed by this industrial farm. We hope you can join us.
