Testing the lowering of the Exeter River begins

The Seacoast Online article regarding the draw-down of the Exeter River, a major tributary of Great Bay,  can be found here:

Testing the lowering of the Exeter River begins

“The process will allow the town to examine the impact on groundwater levels and potential withdrawal rates in the event the Great Dam is removed. During the draw-down, the Department of Public Works and the town’s consultant, Weston & Sampson, will monitor water quality, flow and more.”

The Exeter River is protected by the New Hampshire River Management Protection Program which protects those rivers which have outstanding natural and cultural resources. More information on the river including it’s history, wildlife, fishing, and recreation can be found at:
