Water Use Registration and Reporting Program

The water use registration and reporting program gathers water use data from facilities using in excess of 20,000 gallons of water per day averaged over any 7-day period, or more than 600,000 gallons of water over any 30-day period. The goal of the program is to maintain accurate water use data to help understand how water resources are being used in New Hampshire. The data also assists researchers and scientists with water budget estimates to assess potential impacts to individual aquifers and watersheds. Program data is integral to understanding current stresses to our water resources while helping to evaluate future water needs in New Hampshire.

NHDES adopted administrative rules for water use registration and reporting on September 23, 2008. The rules implement statute requirements by describing the information required for registration, outlining accuracy requirements relative to water use measurement, and defining the frequency that water use data must be submitted to the Department. The administrative rules and statue are located under Rules/Regulatory below.
