Salt Marsh Restoration


NHCP has been heavily involved in salt marsh restoration since 1990 by funding numerous projects through the Section 306A program. Among these have been projects in Rye, Hampton, and Seabrook that have restored over 100 acres of marsh. These projects include replacing inadequate culverts, removing fill, and Phragmites mitigation. In 1994, the Natural Resources Conservation Service identified 31 tidal restrictions on the coast. Of these, 15 have been eliminated, restoring approximately 720 acres of marsh.
