N.H. Estuaries Project Now Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership

January 21, 2009

On Jan.1, 2009, the name of the New Hampshire Estuaries Project, a program based at UNH, was changed to the Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership (PREP). The name change is in response to a recent expansion of the organization’s focus area that now includes the entire watersheds of the Hampton-Seabrook Estuary and the Great Bay Estuary. Since 24 percent of the Great Bay Estuary watershed is located in Maine, a regional name for the organization was required.

Furthermore, the new name reflects the collaborative approach taken by the
organization to protect, restore, and monitor the health of the Hampton-Seabrook Estuary and the Great Bay Estuary. PREP now works in 42 New Hampshire communities and 10 Maine communities.

The program is primarily funded by a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency and involves governmental agencies, university researchers, non-profit organizations, businesses, and the public.

The PREP Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan, project reports, and other resources are available at www.prep.unh.edu.
