Court refuses to act on $100M nitrogen mandate Great Bay towns face
This case began when the Great Bay Municipal Coalition, comprised of Dover, Portsmouth, Rochester, Exeter and Newmarket said DES failed to put a document into effect the DES issued in June 2009 known as “2009 Criteria.” The document, officially entitled, “Numeric Nutrient Criteria for the Great Bay Estuary,” sets out water quality criteria for the nitrogen in the water. Once this document was created, DES declared that the Great Bay Estuary had too much nitrogen and, as a result, would need to spend close to $100 million to update the current water treatment facility.
