Maine DEP sends over $400,000 to communities for cleaning or closing their landfills

AUGUSTA, Maine - Over $400,000 in reimbursement checks have been sent to 11 municipalities for landfill closure and cleanup costs bringing the total to $863,000 since January 2013. 

In 2012, Governor Paul R. LePage signed legislation so the Maine Department of Environmental Protection could pay back its bills to towns and cities who closed or remediated their landfills which were causing environmental and public health risks. 

"Towns and cities did the right thing for the environment by cleaning or closing their landfills and my Administration did the right thing by getting its fiscal house in order," said Governor LePage. "These communities were promised reimbursement for their work but the funding ran out in 2000. Now other towns are seeing that by getting balancing our books, they too can clean up their landfill and receive a portion of that money back." 

Since the reimbursement program was reinstated six towns - Hartland, Eastport, Pembroke, Tremont,

LOVELY LICHENS OF THORNE HEAD

Join KELT to discover the lichens of Thorne Head Preserve
Bath, Maine - The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust's (KELT) celebrates lichens at its fourth Summer Exploration on August 30. At Thorne Head Preserve in Bath, learn to identify common lichen species and how they benefit the forest from 10am to noon with Maine Master Naturalist Volunteers Becky Kolak and Dr. Fred Cichocki.

Lichens are an organism made up of fungi and algae (or cyanobacteria). The harmonious relationship between the two allows lichens to grow in a vast array of environments from arctic tundra to rainforests to the mixed woodland of KELT's own Thorne Head Preserve. Deceivingly simple and found on tree trunks and branches, bare rock, and exposed soil, lichens will amaze seasoned and budding naturalists with their hidden complexities.

A rain or shine event, the program is free and open to the public. Registration is strongly encouraged and any questions can be directed to Becky Kolak at 442-8400 or bkolak@kennebecestuary.org. This program was generously sponsored by the Merrymeeting Bay Trust.

The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust is a membership supported organization dedicated to protecting the land, water and wildlife of the Kennebec Estuary.  It maintains nine preserves for public enjoyment and has protected over 2,500 acres of land since founding in 1989.

Governor Praises Opening of New Cyber Security Lab

Lab is the product of public and private partnerships
Augusta, Maine - State of Maine Chief Information Officer Jim Smith attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new Cyber Security Lab Wednesday at the University of Southern Maine, Portland campus. The new lab is the product of the Maine Cyber Security Cluster, a collaboration of state executive branch agencies, state universities and private industry. The Office of Information Technology, Maine National Guard and Maine Emergency Management Agency are all members of the Cluster.

"Cyber security is a fast-growing industry," said Governor Paul R. LePage. "The completion of the Cyber Security Lab will allow students to train for high-paying, in-demand jobs right here in Maine."

With his background in the private sector, Governor LePage has long recognized the importance of securing electronic data from unauthorized access. In an effort to highlight the significance of securing this data, the Governor issued, "An Order Establishing the State of Maine Information Protection Working Group and For Other Purposes." (See link at bottom of this page for the Order.)

"Cyber threats are a serious economic issue," said Governor LePage. "The citizens of Maine trust the State with a massive repository of personal information. I am fully committed to protecting information in the State's custody from unauthorized use."

The Governor's Executive Order requires the newly established working group to regularly examine threats and vulnerabilities of State information assets; develop cost effective defenses, best practices, and risk management against threats to State information; and develop state-wide policy and procedures. It also directs cyber security training for all state personnel.

"Maine already has measures in place to protect itself from cyber threats," said Jim Smith, CIO for the State of Maine. "However, with the growing threat of cyber attacks worldwide, it is critical that the State remains constantly vigilant about cyber security. Over the last three years, the Governor has enthusiastically supported our efforts to partner with other states, the National Guard, Maine Emergency Management Agency, Homeland Security and private industry to protect the information of the citizens of the State of Maine."

The initial goal of the Maine Cyber Security Cluster is to build a central clearinghouse for cyber education and awareness in Maine. The first part of that project, the Cyber Security Lab at USM, was realized with grant funding. Future plans for the lab include providing cyber testing directly to Maine businesses, allowing the lab to become self-sustaining.

apparatus checks, daily cleaning, routine repairs and maintenance to the fleet and
of the quarters, the following occurred:
 Thursday evening C-Shift hosted a dinner for two couples who bid $400 for “Dinner at the Firehouse” at a benefit auction for RDNA.

Manager and discuss their change from oil fueled boiler to compressed natural

certified without any requisite work being performed.

being out of service and we quickly put them to work here in Rockland at a two
car accident where three patients needed to be transported. In instances where
Thomaston is using our ambulance they provide aid back to us at no cost,
allowing us to have three staffed units on scene faster than normal. We had to
request North East to cover us during this time and they too were dispatched to
an emergency call in Rockland necessitating a third mutual aid service, South
Thomaston EMS, to cover our station while the first four ambulances were tied up.

call in town for a total of 6 patients transported (5 from Rockland) before our first
