Title: Exploring the Trends, the Science, and the Options of Buffer Management in the Great Bay Watershed - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)
Short Name: Exploring the Trends, the Science, and the Options of Buffer Management in the Great Bay Watershed - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)
Status: Planned
Abstract:

This project will enhance stakeholder capacity to make informed decisions on the protection and restoration of buffers around the Great Bay Estuary by addressing the following question: What are the options for addressing the challenges to effectively protect and restore buffer zones around New Hampshire's Great Bay? The project will support strategic agency and nonprofit investments; inform strategies for outreach professionals to work with towns on water quality improvement, habitat protection, climate adaptation, and nonpoint source pollution control; and lead to new research questions.

Purpose:

The health of the Great Bay Estuary is strongly influenced by stressors from across the watershed. Seven rivers flow into the estuary, which is recessed 15 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. While science and case studies clearly demonstrate the value of vegetated buffers along these rivers in promoting a healthy estuary, New Hampshire does not yet consistently or effectively use buffers to protect the Great Bay Estuary.
