Souhegan River Advisory Committee seeks representatives from watershed towns

The NH Rivers Management and Protection Program has a partnership between state government and local citizens in the Local River Management Advisory Committees of New Hampshire’s designated rivers. The Souhegan River Leadership Advisory Committee (SoRLAC) has been in existence for over 18 years. The committee plays a vital role in protecting the river. For example, work being done within a quarter mile of the Souhegan River is looked at by SoRLAC at regular monthly meeting and recommendations are made for permitting to the state.
Up to three residents from each riverfront community along the length of designation or other stakeholders for the protection of the Souhegan River can be appointed to the committee by the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Services. Committee members represent a broad range of interests, expertise and backgrounds. Anyone interested in protecting the river including farmers, business representatives, recreationists, conservation members, landowners or members of local government may be eligible for appointment. Membership is a three years commitment; however, our meetings are informal and anyone is invited to attend. Agendas and minutes may be posted here
