PREP Reports & Publications

 
The Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership at the University of New Hampshire is part of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s National Estuary Program, between local, state and federal agencies established under the Clean Water Act with the goal of protecting and enhancing the Great Bay and Hampton/Seabrook Estuaries. Since its inception in 1995, PREP has produced a number of documents related to the environmental quality of the Seacoast’s estuarine systems. These documents provide information on the health of estuarine resources, summaries of project activities, and results of research studies.
