In 2018, the Warner River was classified as a designated river, as defined by New Hampshire’s River Management and Protection Program, joining the Merrimack, Contoocook and sixteen other rivers of outstanding character. This designation requires the formation of a Local Advisory Committee (LAC) to ensure active participation by local residents and stakeholders.
The WRLAC is composed of volunteers representing a variety of river interests and each of the communities within the watershed. The WRLAC is responsible for developing and implementing a River Corridor Management Plan which documents the river’s existing conditions and makes recommendations for how to protect the river and its many uses for generations to come.
