Attorney General Joseph A. Foster and Assistant Commissioner Clark Freise of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services ("NHDES") announce that the Hillsborough County Superior Court (Temple, J.) has approved a settlement between the State and Nashua Foundries, Inc. ("Nashua Foundries") resolving allegations of violations of the State's Underground Storage Facilities Act.
