The U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire awarded the Conservation Law Foundation $333,176.79 in attorneys’ fees and $23,195.93 in costs in connection with a Clean Water Act lawsuit against the State of New Hampshire alleging that the Powder Mill State Fish Hatchery was discharging pollutants in violation of the facility’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency intervened in the underlying lawsuit, filed in 2018, which resulted in a consent decree.
