Is the proposed project within the protected shoreland?

The protected shoreland extends 250 feet landward from the reference line of all protected waterbodies.

Protected waterbodies include all lakes, ponds and impoundments greater than 10 acres in size; all 4th order and greater streams and rivers; most designated rivers and river segments under RSA 483, The Rivers Management & Protection Act; and all waters subject to the ebb and flow of the tide, including tidal marshes, rivers and estuaries.

All lakes, ponds, impoundments, rivers and streams protected under the SWQPA are listed by town on the Consolidated List of Water Bodies subject to the Shoreland Water Quality Protection Act.
