Comparison: State vs. Federal
• Rules. Sources of air contaminants in New Hampshire must obtain a temporary permit. Non-Title V sources must comply with the state operating permit provisions. Sources subject to the Title V program must comply with New Hampshire's Title V operating permit program, which follows the federal program and received final full approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) effective November 23, 2001. The EPA has also approved a Title V permitting threshold for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that is consistent with the federal requirements. See the national section TITLE V for more information.
• Administration and enforcement. DES's Air Resources Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's air emissions permit program.
