New Hampshire Ocean Wastewater Project Moving Forward

May 21, 2004

Plans to set up a massive wastewater project involving 44 New Hampshire communities are set to go forward pending final approval by the Legislature and Gov. Craig Benson, according to a report.

The plan would allow the communities to create an authority to combine their wastewater resources. It will be voted on by both the House and Senate next week.

A study approved by the Legislature last year will spend more than one year looking into combining wastewater from the communities and building a wastewater pipeline to send the waste into the ocean.
