New Hampshire’s Turf Fertilzer Law What You Should Know

“Nitrogen and phosphorus are nutrients essential for the growth of plants. However, an overabundance of these nutrients causes pollution in waterways. In New Hampshire, more than half of the nitrogen pollution to Great Bay can be traced back to urban and suburban nonpoint source pollution, including fertilizer runoff.* Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution, unlike pollution from industrial and sewage treatment plants, comes from many different sources. NPS pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground. As the runoff moves, it picks up and transports natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters and ground waters.**”
