Federal officials announced a plan Tuesday to reduce pollution in one of the largest estuaries in the Northeast.
In the draft Clean Water Permit for the Great Bay in New Hampshire, the Environmental Protection Agency calls for a dozen communities that ring the bay to reduce the amounts of nitrogen going into the waters, rather than focusing on one community as it has in the past.
The move is expected to improve water quality for birds, fish and other marine life that depend upon the waters. The bay also has some of the largest eelgrass meadows along the East Coast.
