Abstract

The 2010 Piscataqua Region Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) is an update of the 2000 CCMP that addresses current and emerging issues impacting the water quality and environmental health of estuaries in the Piscataqua Region. The 10-year plan includes seven goals, 35 objectives, and 82 action plans that were developed through an extensive 18-month process involving 159 stakeholders representing federal and state resource management agencies, nongovernment organizations, industry, legislators, and the 52 communities of the Piscataqua Region. Action plans are categorized by critical theme areas, including water resources, land use and habitat protection, living resources and habitat restoration, and watershed stewardship.
