Governor Signs Water Bills in Amherst

Gov. Chris Sununu is surrounded by legislators and supporters as he signs into law three Clean Water bills

AMHERST – Governor Chris Sununu visited Amherst Town Hall, Landry Meeting Room on Thursday, July 20 for the official signing of three bills to protect water quality in the state. Local and state lawmakers were among the dignitaries who attended.

SB 57 makes appropriations to the department of environmental services for the purposes of funding eligible drinking water and wastewater projects under the state aid grant program.  It makes appropriations to the department of environmental services for funding specific water and wastewater projects and makes appropriations from the drinking water and groundwater trust fund to the department of environmental services to address drinking water contamination in Amherst caused by perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA).

With the passage of this bill Pennichuck Water Works will be preparing to bring public water to the homes in Amherst affected by the contamination.

Gov. Sununu spoke of the public trust citizens have in the government to ensure that the glass of water a parent hands a child is safe to drink.
