MtBE Remediation Bureau

The MtBE Remediation Bureau was created in 2014 to address the statewide problem of Methyl-tertiary-Butyl Ether (MtBE) con­tamination. MtBE is a gasoline additive that was used in New Hampshire from the late 1970s until its use was banned in New Hampshire on January 1, 2007. Its high solubility and resistance to biodegradation cause it to travel farther, spread faster, and last longer in groundwater than many other contami­nants. These factors have made MtBE the most common contaminant in groundwater that is not naturally occurring.

The MtBE Remediation Bureau is charged with the responsibility of designing and implementing a comprehensive plan to investigate, cleanup, and remediate MtBE contaminated sites. The plan allocates funds for: 1) the investigation and remediation of MtBE contaminated sites, 2) testing at risk private drinking water wells within a location radius of contamination source sites, 3) providing safe, clean drinking water to impacted citizens, 4) installation and improvement of public water supply infrastructure in areas having significant MtBE contamination and 5) implementation of measures to prevent further MtBE contamination.
