LD 1775 Private Well Testing


The Maine legislature continues to propose ever increasing stringent policies on the real estate industry. Restrictive shoreland migratory bird nesting policy,  the proposed Maine real estate transfer tax increase and now a new law aimed at requiring all private wells to be tested prior to the transfer of the property.   The bill stipulates who must test the well, and then requires the tests be sent to the local municipality and any relevant health agency.  For a struggling economy the last thing Maine legislature needs to be doing is hindering the real estate industy, one of the bright spots.

More information on the proposed bill.
