EPA Award

April 25, 2007

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently gave an Environmental Merit Award to the New Hampshire College and University Compliance Assistance Cooperative (NHC3UA), developed by UNH and Dartmouth College to assist member institutions of the New Hampshire College and University Council in compliance with environmental laws.

The NHC3UA identifies specific federal, state and local regulatory requirements that apply to each institution by conducting on-site environmental and occupational health and safety audits. It is anticipated that the three-year project will result in substantial cost savings to these institutions by avoiding large fines or the necessity of hiring individual consultants to provide legal or technical assistance.

Given out by EPA since 1970, the merit awards honor individuals and groups who have shown particular ingenuity and commitment in their efforts to preserve the region's environment. This year's competition drew 54 nominations from across New England; 29 New England organizations and individuals received the award.

“Our Environmental Merit Awards are among the highest honors EPA can bestow to recognize environmental accomplishments,” said Robert W. Varney, regional administrator for EPA’s New England Office. “I offer my gratitude to these citizens for their extraordinary contributions in protecting our shared environment. Their work reflects the best attributes of New Englanders, working to find solutions to tough environmental issues.”
