New waterkeeper says Portsmouth NH needs new sewer plant now

Known locally as a founding volunteer for an oyster recycling project for improving water quality in Great Bay — and as president of the state chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association — Jeff Barnum has been named Great Bay – Piscataqua waterkeeper. Just a few days on the job working for the Conservation Law Foundation, an environmental advocacy group, and Barnum is already taking aim at Portsmouth for its “incessant pleas for delay” with regard to upgrading its circa 1964 sewage treatment plant on Peirce Island.
