DEP gives initial OK to Brunswick train facility

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has given initial approval of the final permit needed to begin construction of Amtrak Downeaster’s layover facility in Brunswick.

The Portland Press Herald reported that the DEP issued draft approval for the $12.7 million project’s storm water permit on Wednesday. The department is expected to make a final decision on the permit June 17.

If the stormwater permit is ultimately approved, Northern New England Passenger Rail Authority would have the authority to begin construction. The project continues to face opposition from nearby residents, who want the facility to be located elsewhere.
