During 2002, in and around Hampton Harbor, the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) conducted two rounds of wet weather sampling of stormdrains, tributaries, and harbor stations for bacteria and flow in order to calculate bacteria loads. This information was needed to prioritize pollution sources as part of a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study of bacteria in Hampton/Seabrook Harbor.
