with Sandy Crystall from NH Department of Environmental Services
The New Hampshire Drinking Water and Groundwater Trust Fund (DWGTF) was established under RSA 485-F to provide for the protection, preservation, and enhancement of drinking water and groundwater resources of the state. The DWGTF and New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) hold annual grant rounds to consider applications for the permanent protection of undeveloped water supply lands, including wellhead protection areas, hydrologic areas of concern for surface water supplies, and land that is likely to benefit future public water supply sources. Among the eligible applicants are municipalities, land trusts and public water systems. Since its first grant round in 2018, the Commission has provided $3.56 million to protect 5,429 acres of water supply land.
