Abstract The project was conducted to determine public attitudes concerning political aspects of environmental control. An opinion survey of registered voters and elected local officials in the Penobscot Project area revealed agreement that pollution is the major issue facing Maine and that current anti-pollution laws are inadequate. A similar survey of members of the 105th Maine Legislature showed them divided on the importance of the issue, and generally content with present anti-pollution legislation. All groups were optimistic about restoring the river 'to a good condition in about 20 years'. Large majorities reject loss of employment as a bar to pollution control programs. Strong government controls are acceptable to most of those surveyed. The 'effluent charge' concept is overwhelmingly supported by voters and local officials, while legislators are divided. No single, dominant 'cause-and-effect' perception of Penobscot pollution exists among voters. (Modified author abstract)
