Prior Rules

The following links are for superseded versions of the Maine State Plumbing Code and the Subsurface Wastewater Disposal Rules in which significant revisions were incorporated.

Mobile Device Files

The Subsurface Wastewater Disposal Rules are available in formats which are compatible with Amazon Kindles (*.mobi) and Barnes & Noble Nook and compatible devices (*.epub), and in Adobe PDF format which is compatible with most e-readers and tablet devices.

The formatting changed a bit during the conversion to *.mobi and *.epub formats, notably pagination (to accommodate e-readers) and tables, but the content is unchanged. The Adobe PDF version matches the printed version.
