Baldacci spokesman Lee Umphrey said the governor was still reviewing the letter, but in general he’s opposed to the idea of a water extraction fee.

"He recognizes the importance of Poland Spring as a company in Maine and doesn’t want to jeopardize their ability to do business and provide employment for hundreds of Maine people," said Umphrey.
