PL 648 as passed by the 118th Legislature directed that "...the Maine Forest Service, in consultation with the Maine Land Use Regulation Commission and the Department of Environmental Protection, shall develop a report with recommendations for a set of statewide standards to minimize the impact of timber harvesting on nonpoint source pollution."

The legislation also directed the Maine Forest Service (MFS) to:

  1. evaluate the progress made by timber harvesting operations in implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs); and
  2. to make a recommendation regarding the use of compliance with BMPs as a determinant of enforcement proceedings.

Additionally, the legislation directed that MFS submit the report to the Land and Water Resources Council (LWRC) for review.
