GROTON: Bill would protect Nashua River

US Representative Niki Tsongas recently unveiled legislation to help designate the Nashua River as a Wild Scenic River, a classification that would help preserve and protect the waterway while making it eligible for federal funding for conservation efforts. The legislation would authorize the National Park Service to conduct a study on the Nashua River and two of its tributaries, the Squannacook and Nissitissit rivers, to determine their eligibility for the program. The park agency would work with state and local governments, conservation groups, and concerned residents to develop a conservation plan for the river in order to protect water quality and conserve open spaces.
