The Conservation Law Foundation recently filed a motion to intervene in a lawsuit brought by five New Hampshire cities and towns against the state’s Department of Environmental Services over a study on nitrogen pollution in the Great Bay Estuary.

Foundation officials say Great Bay, Little Bay and the Piscataqua River show troubling signs of pollution and degradation, and action to clean them needs to be taken soon.
