Best Management Practices to Prevent Groundwater Contamination
The State of New Hampshire’s Best Management Practices Rules apply to all facilities that handle larger-than-household quantities of regulated substances. These facilities are identified in New Hampshire's Groundwater Protection Act (RSA 485-C) as Potential Contamination Sources. The purpose of the BMPs is to prevent the release of a regulated substance into groundwater and potentially contaminating drinking water supplies. The BMPs are common-sense operating practices that help businesses minimize their environmental liability.
