I see that the map you presented does not have one dot in Maine where we live. We have lived in our house for more than thirty years on Grammar Rd in Sanford Maine. We get our water supply from a city gravel packed well on New Dam Rd about four miles from our house. Many years ago this town gave permission to a company (now defunct) to reclaim copper from printed circuit board on a site next to our water supply. It is now a dump site contaminated with copper ( the soil is orange} and piles of printed circuit board mounded up higher than the building. In fact if you go to google maps and find the site you will see it clearly within 1000 ft of our water supply. I have taken water samples from our water main before it even comes into the house. It failed as it had 10 times the legal limit for copper I have fought the good fight with local and state officials. Nothing gets done. Six years ago I got kidney cancer. Someone else will have to take on this cause now. My hope is that you will investigate and at the very least the EPA should require this state to divert out water supply to another gravel packed well. I was told by the Epa that copper not being biodegradable, could not be moved elsewhere.

No problem from Solar, Wind, Biomass or Geothermal. Oh ya, we still need interconnection but just for maintenance of the power system. If ready next, we shouldn’t scare on the disasters or anything………..!!!
