75 The calculation to determine vessels with MSDs is based on data developed by the Urban Harbors Institute with the exception of anomalous data in the under 16-foot range due to survey ambiguity. For the purposes of this application, ME DEP uses the following percentages and will assume that all vessels with heads are equipped with an MSD: 0% of vessels less than 16' have MSDs; 12% of vessels 16-25' have MSDs; 86% of vessels 26- 40' have MSDs; and 95% of vessels over 40’ have MSDs.

80 In order to comply with Phase II stormwater regulations, MS4 communities in Maine are required by US EPA to effectively prohibit illicit discharges to the storm sewer system, except for discharges allowed under a NPDES permit, by municipal ordinance or other regulatory mechanisms. The ordinance must contain appropriate enforcement mechanisms (see reference 30).
