The NHDES Watershed Assistance Section is excited to announce the addition of a new restoration and management plan to our family of great watershed plans. After a year of focused, diligent work, the New Hampshire Rivers Council (NHRC) and its partners successfully completed and published the Winnicut River Watershed Restoration and Management Plan. The plan will guide restoration and management actions to improve water quality in the river. The plan complements NHRC’s ongoing work in the watershed including Volunteer River Assessment Program water quality monitoring and outreach through the Watershed Steward Program™.
The NHRC is looking forward to working with watershed municipalities, residents, agencies, and other local partners to implement the plan beginning this fall.

Funding for the Winnicut River Watershed Restoration and Management Plan was provided in part by NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management under the Coastal Zone Management Act in conjunction with the NH Department of Environmental Services Coastal Program with additional funding provided through a Watershed Assistance Grant with Clean Water Act Section 319 funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and from the generous contributions from members of the New Hampshire Rivers Council.
