About Mascoma LAC

In recognition of the Mascoma River as a vital community asset and the local support for its nomination, the New Hampshire Legislature designated the Mascoma River from Canaan Center to West Lebanon as a Protected River under the State Rivers Management and Protection Program (RSA 483) in 2010.

The Mascoma River Local Advisory Committee (Mascoma River LAC), composed of residents of Lebanon, Enfield, and Canaan, is authorized by State law to advise on the management and protection of the Mascoma River. The Mascoma River LAC receives no dedicated funding from the State, instead seeking funding from grants and local sources such as Mascoma River Watershed Council, Rotary Clubs, Lions Club, and other local philanthropic organizations.

Mascoma River LAC members are local citizens interested in the river – they are nominated by their Town and appointed to a three-year term by the Commissioner for NH Department of Environmental Services.  Want to join us?  Please come to one of our meetings to meet us, or fill out this form and return it to us at our address below.

Current member list:

Lebanon: Ernst Oidtmann, David Rosengarten, and Kathie Romano
Enfield: Don MacMeekin, Alv Elvestad and one vacancy 
Canaan: Bill Chabot and two vacancies

Mascoma River LAC meets the third Tuesday of each month from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm at the UVLSRPC offices, 10 Water Street, Suite 225, Lebanon, NH 03766. All meetings are open to the public.
