Through the tireless efforts of many volunteers and the unanimous support of all the river’s towns, this nomination signals the beginning of a more regional management approach for the river and its surrounding lands. The LRAC will be expanded to include representatives from all the towns. These new committee members will be responsible for creating a bigger and better river management plan and for reviewing all projects that could affect the river’s flow and special wildlife habitats. It is also a unique opportunity to coordinate town zoning regulations and focus conservation efforts that cross town lines. The water and wildlife of the Lamprey do not recognize town boundaries. With this nomination, the state and towns have also recognized this important reality.
