Watershed Planning

Geographic Area
Lakes Region
Preparing a watershed management plan for Lake Winnipesaukee has challenged planners and decision makers for some time.  In addition to being the state’s largest water body and a significant economic force, its physical structure and shape is more a system of interconnected bays rather than a single cohesive body of water. Each embayment has differing characteristics and land-based influences and in-lake responses to nutrient inputs. Thus, management should be done for each embayment, accounting for these characteristics.
