  • UNH fellow to measure Dover’s carbon and nitrogen output

    posted on: 6/18/2018

    Jackson KaspariThe City of Dover’s Planning and Community Development Department has welcomed Jackson Kaspari to City Hall for the summer as a University of New Hampshire Sustainability Fellow. Dover was selected to host one of the UNH Sustainability Institute’s 23 fellowships in 2018. These fellowships pair outstanding graduate and undergraduate students with competitive, challenging, multi-disciplinary projects based with organizations and communities throughout New England.

    The City’s project will be a first in New Hampshire. The project is not only a calculation of the carbon footprint of municipal operations, but also the nitrogen footprint created by the City’s facilities, fleets, school food purchases, fertilizer program, and wastewater treatment methods.
    Kaspari will utilize a tool developed by UNH, the Sustainability Indicator Management and Analysis Platform (SIMAP), which was designed for campus analyses. Part of Kaspari’s work will be to begin to modify the tool in ways more directly applicable to municipalities.
