Title: DRAFT Section 401 Water Quality Certification for the Bellamy River Artificial Recharge Facility in Dover, NH available for comment until 6/15/20 
Description: The City of Dover (Applicant) is proposing to construct an artificial recharge (AR) facility located in the Pudding Hill Aquifer along the Bellamy River in Dover, New Hampshire. The AR facility will withdraw water from the Bellamy River and discharge it to two infiltration basins (AR basins). Groundwater recharge is needed to increase the sustainable yield of two of the Citys water supply production wells (Ireland and DP 1) and to help manage groundwater quality within the Pudding Hill Aquifer. In accordance with Section 401 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1341) and NH RSA 485-A:12, III, a draft Water Quality Certification (WQC) for the Activity is now available for public review and comment on the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) website.The draft certification states that based on the facts, findings and conditions in the certification, NHDES has determined that there is reasonable assurance that the proposed Activity will not violate State surface water quality standards.
