Abstract : The purpose of this study is to evaluate and document the current and projected future dredging and dredged material disposal requirements of New Hampshire to provide the framework for future efforts to assess the need for an open ocean disposal site or sites. It was determined that over the next 50 years Hampton-Seabrook Harbor may require dredging of about 1,140,000 cubic yards of material; Little Harbor, depending on need, 270,000 cubic yards; Portsmouth Harbor/Piscataqua River, 640,000 cubic yards; and Rye Harbor, 132,400 cubic yards. A more complete analysis 6f future trends is contained in Section 3: 'Historic Dredging and Future Projections'.
