The Mascoma River Nominating Committee and the Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission submitted a nomination application to DES on June 1, 2010. The application is available for review on the DES Rivers Management and Protection Program website located at http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wmb/rivers/nominations.htm

The DES Rivers Coordinator has determined the application meets state requirements, making the river eligible for consideration during the next legislative session into the Rivers Management and Protection Program.
