Specifications include, but are not limited to:The New Hampshire Rivers Council, with support from the New HampshireDepartment of Environmental Services (NHDES) and other partners, is seekingstatements of qualifications from qualified firms, partnering organizations, and otherentities to work with stakeholders to develop a watershed management and restorationplan for the Winnicut River watershed. The watershed includes the towns of Greenland,North Hampton, and Stratham and drains to Great Bay. In addition to NHDES and thetowns, partners, and stakeholders involved in the evaluation and restoration of thewatershed include community and civic groups, nonprofit organizations, and localbusinesses. The Winnicut River and several of its tributaries are on the NHDES 2012 303(d) listas impaired for Aquatic Life Use and Primary Contact Recreation due to low levels ofdissolved oxygen and elevated levels of E. coli. Additionally, the Winnicut River is oneof seven major tributaries to Great Bay, which is on the same 303(d) list for Aquatic LifeUse, likely due to nutrient enrichment from nitrogen. The Great Bay Nonpoint SourceStudy shows that the total nitrogen delivered to Great Bay from the Winnicut is twentythreetons annually. The Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership reported in 2015 thatover the last twenty years, the land area in towns in the Winnicut watershed have allexceed ten percent impervious cover, which increases pollutant levels in stormwaterrunoff. The Winnicut Rivers contributions to this runoff are difficult to eliminatewithout an in-depth analysis and the concerted effort of committed stakeholders.
