Warner River Corridor Management Plan Survey
Welcome to the Warner River Corridor Management Plan Survey
The Warner River was designated as a protected river in 2018 under the state’s River Management and Protection Program (RMPP). The RMPP was established in 1988 with the passage of RSA 483 to protect certain rivers, called designated rivers, for their outstanding natural and cultural resources. The Program is administered by the NH Department of Environmental Services.
After designation, the RMPP requires that a local advisory committee prepare and implement a corridor management plan to help guide river communities in protecting and managing the valuable resources of the designated river. The designated river corridor (view map here) consists of the lands within one-quarter mile of each bank of the river, between the confluence of the West Branch Warner River and Andrew Brook in Bradford and the confluence of the Warner and Contoocook Rivers in Hopkinton. The Warner River Corridor Management Plan is currently being developed by the Warner River Local Advisory Committee (WRLAC), with support from the Central NH Regional Planning Commission (CNHRPC). The Plan will identify management goals and recommend actions that should be taken to protect the river and its resources. The role of the WRLAC will be to implement the plan and coordinate activities affecting the river on a regional basis.
The complete Warner River Nomination Report is available here.
This survey is for everyone in the five riverfront towns (Bradford, Hopkinton, Sutton, Warner and Webster) who would like to share their thoughts on the Warner River's resources. The WRLAC will use the results of this survey to assist in the development of the Warner River Corridor Management Plan.
