Victory | March 12 2019
The Surfrider Foundation New Hampshire Chapter scored a victory on 1/19/19 when they helped defeat a proposal to place a porta-potty at Sawyer's Beach in Rye.
Grounds for opposition included:
After the initial victory, the Beach Committee submitted article 35 that was then voted on at the March 12, 2019 Town Election. The article passed by a wide margin of 1209 to 404, meaning that no porta-potties will ever be able to be placed at Sawyer's Beach!!
The best way to support our work is to become a member of the Surfrider Foundation.

Everyone should have access to clean water to surf, swim and play in. The Surfrider Foundation is taking a multi-tiered approach to tackle ocean pollution problems. We are testing the waters for bacteria and toxins, raising public awareness and finding real solutions to ocean pollution; solutions that restore healthy watersheds, protect local water supplies and keep pollution from reaching the ocean.Learn More
