The Environmental Protection Bureau is a unit of the Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General. Attorneys in the bureau prosecute civil and criminal violations of New Hampshire's environmental laws and provide legal advice and representation to the state entities that oversee the environment and natural resources in New Hampshire. Attorneys in the Environmental Protection Bureau work closely with the Department of Environmental Services, which is responsible for the administration of the State's environmental protection programs relating to air pollution, water pollution, and hazardous and solid waste management. Bureau attorneys also work closely with the Fish and Game Department, the agency responsible for administering many of the State's wildlife and natural resource programs, and with the Office of Energy and Planning which provides information, data and guidance to assist decision makers on issues pertaining to development, land protection, energy use and community planning.
