Legal Unit

The Legal Unit of the NHDES Commissioner’s Office provides legal and administrative support for all enforcement and rulemaking undertaken by NHDES, and provides legal guidance to NHDES staff on interpretations of statutes and rules and proposed legislation. The Legal Unit does not serve as general counsel to NHDES; that role remains with the NH Attorney General’s Office.

As part of NHDES's statutory obligation to provide clerical and technical support to the N.H. Environmental Councils, the Legal Unit also houses the Appeals Clerk for the Councils.
