“For the Good of the River”
In 1995, several people living in towns along and near the Exeter met to discuss working together to raise awareness about the river and advocate for its protection. Established in 1996, the Exeter-Squamscott River Local Advisory Committee acts as a steward of the Exeter and Squamscott Rivers, working with landowners, town government, developers, conservation organizations, and state and federal agencies to advise and advocate for the protection of the river’s water quality, water quantity, wildlife habitat, and scenic, recreational and historical resources.
The Exeter River and Squamscott River are two names used to describe one river, connecting a dozen communities. The Exeter River rises from spring-fed ponds in Chester and flows for thirty three miles through Sandown, Raymond, Fremont, Danville, Brentwood and Exeter.
