Court rules for PSNH

David Brooks reports in the Nashua Telegraph on the Supreme Court's decision siding with PSNH and against those looking to block pollution controls in Bow.

The last-ditch effort to halt the construction of a $450 million scrubber system at New Hampshire's largest coal-fired power plant has been tossed out by the state Supreme Court.

In a ruling released Wednesday, the court said that opponents of the plan had no legal standing to block a Public Utilities Commission decision allowing the construction to go forward.

PSNH is building a huge "scrubber" and associated processing buildings at the 473-megawatt Merrimack Station plant in Bow, one the state's largest power plants. The scrubber will remove most mercury and sulfur – both serious pollutants – from the power plant's emissions. The scrubber was required by state law. (more)
