MBOIA members attend ICC Annual Conference

MBOIA was well represented at the 2009 ICC Conference and Code Hearings.  Those in attendance were: President Tim Nelson, Vice President Dick Lambert, Board Member Mike Nugent and member Dan Wellington.  The conference included election of officers, two days of education sessions, various opportunities for interaction with code officials from throughout the country and the world and, of course, the first round of code change hearings that will form the basis for the 2012 editions of the I-Codes.

Subsurface Wastewater Disposal System Permit Surcharge Now in Effect!

That State Legislature, during its budget deliberations this year, decided to fund the Water Quality Improvement Fund by enacting several surcharges.  One of those surcharges is a $15 charge to all non-engineered subsurface wastewater disposal systems permitted after July 1, 2009.  Unfortunately very few people knew about this surcharge until Russ Martin sent out a newsletter to all LPIs last week. 

After a discussion with Russ and Andy Fisk from the Maine DEP, the letter found at this link was generated so that our membership could be made aware of this change.  Please note that they are asking that we start collecting this money “as soon as possible” and that it is not necessary to seek back payment for systems already permitted since July 1.  Please note the special instructions on how to remit the surcharge to the State.
