In this State of the Estuaries Report, the New Hampshire Estuaries Project presents a snapshot of the environmental condition of the state’s estuaries. The Report describes the region’s valuable natural resources, and their essential links to the cultural and economic well-being of the Seacoast region and the state. It identifies challenges and problems that threaten the unique character and natural resource wealth of the estuaries.
This State of the Estuaries Report summarizes the Technical Characterization’s detailed assessment of the environmental condition of the estuaries, and describes in lay terms the scientific basis for the water quality, land use, and other natural resource management recommendations of the NHEP Management Plan.
