Rep. Pingree presents dredging legislation

Rep. Hannah Pingree (D-North Haven) will present a bill Friday that aims to better align state and federal laws regulating the dumping standards and dredging requirements in Maine waters.
Pingree sponsored the bill in hopes the legislation will raise awareness on the complexities of dredge dumping laws that create financial incentives for bringing dredge material from around the state to the Penobscot Bay Ocean Disposal site, located off Rockland.
