MaineDOT Environmental Office
The Environmental Office leads the department in proactively integrating transportation and environmental objectives and innovations as the department plans, develops, operates and maintains Maine's transportation systems.
The Department also adopted an environmental policy statement in 1998 and revised it in 2004. This policy, rooted in the Sensible Transportation Policy Act of 1991, and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, is the guidepost for all steps taken by the Department to protect and enhance the natural and cultural environment in Maine.
Even MaineDot's maintenance and operations practices are managed with an eye towards protecting the environment. MaineDOT maintains a successful environmental management system (EMS). Descriptions of this program are found as a component of the August 5, 2002 MaineDOT report to the directors of Maine's Clean Government Initiative, as well as on a national webpage showcasing successful initiatives.
