EPA Grants Permit to Clean Great Bay

New Hampshire communities push to reduce nitrogen levels.

The Environmental Protection Agency has finalized the granting of a permit to drastically decrease pollution in the Great Bay in New Hampshire, one of the largest estuaries in the Northeast United States. Initiatives to treat stormwater runoff and septic tanks will be the largest part of the effort to reduce nitrogen levels in the body of water.

EPA New England Regional Administrator Dennis Deziel stated, “This permit is an important and innovative approach for a significantly cleaner, healthier Great Bay and reflects many years of hard work among federal, state and local governments to address a critical environmental problem”.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the EPA as they work with residents and businesses in various states to positively impact God’s creation.
  • That Regional Administrator Dennis Deziel would be granted success in this initiative.
  • That New Hampshire will capitalize on the opportunity to address this issue to reduce pollutants.
