1996, 228:1, effective 7-1-96, states that it is the intent of the legislature to integrate the former Division of Water Resources with the former Division of Water Supply and Pollution Control which was renamed the Division of Water. The Department assigned the programs in the rules Env-Wr to the Division of Water.
