Land Resource Regulation
The Maine Department of Environmental Protection is responsible for licensing, enforcement and oversight of various land development activities. This includes review of developments that may have a substantial effect upon the environment. It also includes developing management programs and establishing sound environmental standards that will prevent the degradation of and encourage the enhancement of Maine's natural resources.
