Lamprey River Bulletin Board
Do you know?
The Lamprey River watershed covers 214 square miles and includes parts of fourteen towns, five main tributaries in addition to the main stem Lamprey River, and a rapidly growing human population. The Lamprey River Advisory Committee is working on updating the 2013 River Management Plan so that the river waters remain clean, habitats remain viable, passive recreational access grows sustainably, historical connections remain strong, and people continue to value and protect the rivers we call home. We need your input and help with this important job. Email us to let us know what you value and what your concerns are! Join the committee! Each town can have up to four representatives. (Barrington, Brentwood, Candia, Deerfield, Durham, Epping, Exeter, Fremont, Lee, Newfields, Newmarket, Northwood, Nottingham, Raymond)

Please be advised that elevated fecal bacteria concentrations might be present in the water this spring, summer, and fall.
- All public access points are reporting elevated bacteria counts this summer due to all the rain.
- The Epping Wastewater Treatment Facility is working to address sporadic releases of partially-treated sewage. If a release is imminent, town secretaries will be notified and notices will be posted at all public access points.
- Newmarket: Moonlight Brook where it enters the Lamprey River at Schanda Park continues to have elevated fecal bacterial counts. The town and NHDES are working to resolve the issue.
