Breakwater

Rock breakwaters are allowed on Lake Winnipesaukee under certain conditons.  In fact, NH DES Wetlands publishes a map showing where breakwater construction is readily permitable.

Click here to see the NH DES Breakwater Chart

While this does not preclude a permit in other locations, it sure makes the process easier!

Contact us to determine the feasibilty of a breakwater for your site.  NH DES allows Breakwaters by rule in certain places on Lake Winnipesaukee or you can prove wave action to a specific set of criteria.

Breakwater Finishing UpBreakwater Finishing Up

 Breakwaters are limited to 50 ft extension from shore by both NH DES and the US Army Corps so planning and design are critical to a structure that will both last, and be practical for your specific location.  All rock must be hauled to the site from upland so logistics are important.
