This year, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services turns 25 years old. Its Commissioner, Tom Burack says that over that time a lot of progress has been made in terms of clean water, air and land, but there’s still a long way to go. “This legacy,” Burack says “requires vigilance and maintenance”. Those are tough goals, and with recent budget cuts to his department it makes it even that much more tough. Today we sit down with Commissioner Burack about how he hopes to do that along with challenges around the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, water quality and infrastructure, and protecting and cleaning up the Great Bay.
