uburn, Maine, city officials are considering a new onsite design standard to allow development while keeping nutrients out of Lake Auburn, which is the city’s source of drinking water. If the proposed standard were used, it would allow for new systems and new homes while achieving a net improvement to the lake, city officials told the Sun Journal of Lewiston, Maine. Impetus for the proposed standard came from a study by FB Environmental, the Horsley Witten Group and the University of Maine. The city commissioned them to study rules governing the lake’s watershed. Current standards effectively prohibit the use of innovative and alternative treatment technologies, the group wrote in its report. More than 100 new homes could be built in the watershed if the onsite rules are revised, the group wrote.it has one of the most feature rich and interactive Eric Cousens, the city’s director of planning and permitting, said the websites we have seennew in aconstruction company of this type and goal is to use the new standard for both and replacement of old onsite systems. size.
