The LRAC was created in 1991 after a segment of the Lamprey River in Lee and Durham was named to the New Hampshire Rivers Management and Protection Program in 1990. In 1996, the US Congress designated an 11.5 mile segment to the National Park Service’s National Wild and Scenic Rivers System. An additional 12 mile segment was added in 2000, and in 2011, the entire Lamprey River and five of its major tributaries (Little, North, North Branch, Pawtuckaway, and Piscasic rivers) were added to the NH Rivers Management and Protection Program.
The inclusion of the entire river and tributaries expanded the committee membership to include representatives from all towns that lie in the Lamprey River drainage area.
As of April 2016 Nottingham does not have an appointed member to the LRAC. Interested? Contact the Selectmen's Office during regular office hours.
Meetings are open to the public and the committee meets the fourth Thursday of every month in varying locations.
