The towns of Candia and Deerfield, New Hampshire, both situated within the Great Bay/Little Bay watershed and the Lamprey River subwatershed have agreed to participate with the Southern New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission (SNHPC) to develop and implement land use regulations to protect the remaining undisturbed natural shoreline buffers along the Lamprey and North Branch Rivers (2nd order or higher streams and tributaries) and other surface waters within these communities. The project was approached in two overall steps. Step one involved preparing an inventory, delineation and map of the remaining undisturbed natural vegetated buffers in both communities. The focus of this inventory was to identify the undisturbed and intact natural vegetated buffers adjacent to the 2nd order and higher streams and great ponds. Areas that have been disturbed or impacted by development such as roads, buildings and impervious surfaces were deducted from the overall GIS coverages. No distinction was made in establishing a buffer width or identifying the type of wetland or upland forest as part of the inventory. The primary focus was to identify the remaining undisturbed natural vegetated areas both wetlands and upland forests within the flow path of the water that fills these streams and lakes.
