Announcement of Public Input Sessions for Further Development of Alteration of Terrain Administrative Rules

CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), working closely with NH Fish and Game, is evaluating alternatives for revisions to its Alteration of Terrain (AoT) administrative rules to further develop and clarify the impacts to threatened and endangered species in the AoT permit review process. As part of this process, NHDES will be holding its second public input session to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on and provide suggestions on potential AoT rule language for NHDES consideration. This effort will build upon comments received and issues identified during a public input session held on August 27, 2020.

If you are interested in participating in this effort, please plan on attending the second public input session on October 29, 2020, at 1:00 – 4:00 PM. Due to restrictions on public gatherings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public input session will be held via a video conference platform.
