Title: Certain Water Quality Standards Applicable to Maine 
Abstract:

The EPA is finalizing certain federal water quality standards (WQS) applicable to waters under the state of Maine's jurisdiction, to protect human health and aquatic life. Most of the WQS apply only to waters in Indian lands and other waters where there is a tribal sustenance fishing right, and a small number apply to all Maine waters. On April 20, 2016, EPA published a proposed rule in the Federal Register for the promulgation of these WQS.
