  • September 12, 2017: MACC comments to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) in support of changes to the Water Management Act and the Water Resources Management Program Regulations (310 CMR 36.00). MACC believes that MassDEP’s current program of “grandfathered” registrants (who withdraw more than 100,000 gallons per day (gpd)), and the newer permits (with water withdrawals greater than 100,000 gpd) has created an unfair, two-tiered system that does not meet the goals of the Water Management Act “to protect the natural environment of water and assure comprehensive and systematic planning and management of water withdrawals”.

  • October 10, 2017: MACC comments to the Joint Committee on the Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture on House Bill 2777 “An Act to enable the Commonwealth’s administration of the Massachusetts Pollutant Discharge Elimination System”.  MACC provided qualified opposition to the bill:  we support MassDEP’s efforts to streamline the NPDES program within one agency, but are concerned that the funding for the program could be impacted in future state budgets.  MACC also urged more sustained and robust funding for all of MassDEP’s programs.
