CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services will get $160,000 over two years in a Pollution Prevention grant being awarded by Environmental Protection Agency.

The grants fund programs that reduce the environmental footprints of businesses through projects that significantly reduce or eliminate pollution from air, water and/or land prior to relying on recycling or waste cleanup.

The department will promote climate change mitigation for the hospitality industry through pollution prevention assistance to implement energy efficiency, water conservation and waste reduction projects. It will also promote stormwater pollution prevention by helping New Hampshire businesses install rain gardens or other “best management practices” to control stormwater.
