Continuing to Advance P2 Integration

Organization(s) New Hampshire Dept. of Environmental Services
Project Description The NHPPP has continued to work with the DES regulatory staff and others to incorporate P2 into the Departments' activities in 2003. Recently, the Air Program has begun to make referrals to the P2 program through "Letters of Deficiency," similar to the procedure that the water and waste regulatory programs have in place. In addition, P2 staff provided "P2 Orientation Training" to over 100 staff that has either joined the Department since the last trainings were offered in 1998, or was unable to participate in previous training sessions.

Finally, during the Department's recent strategic planning effort, the DES P2 Goal Team (a multi-media, cross program team) identified several opportunities for further incorporation of P2 into the Department's activities, including institutionalize a communication mechanism between P2 and compliance assurance staff; identify additional P2 opportunities in permitting and regulatory programs and incorporate those activities into program work plans on an annual basis; and deliver advanced P2 training to appropriate DES staff (P2 staff are planning to offer sector-specific training in the fall of 2003). These activities have been incorporated into the DES 5 year strategic plan, and form the basis for continuing efforts to integrate P2 throughout the Department.
