It's Time To Do a Better Job Protecting Our NH Rivers, Streams and Brooks. (VIDEO)

Wednesday 01/06/2021

I grew up in my teen tears in Londonderry south of Manchester and would fish some brooks that emptied into the Merrimack River. The Merrimack was an open sewer then but the Clean Water Act in the early 1970's helped clean the river up. It has flowed pretty clean for decades now. But a recent EPA Report shows that we have not done a good job protecting the habitat around the river and it's tributaries. The Merrimack River provides drinking water for over 600,000 people right now and that number may be a million in the not to distant future. Now is the time to protect our drinking water by securing more public and conservation lands in the watershed.
