Anyone know what they are doing over by the beach where all the ice fisherman access the the lake with their Bob houses? South side of the pavilion. They seem to installing pavers from the parking area to waters edge.

Are they? If I had to guess i would say they are making an access to the lake. People were complaining because when they built the new perched beach there was no access to the lake in the winter.

possibly but Hard to believe it would hold up. The trucks and atv:s that go thru there in the winter to access the ice will destroy those pavers when it softens up. Hopefully they are not going close it off-

I agree, it doesn't seem pavers would stand up, but I do know people felt it was closed off already and that is what they were complaining about.

I just read this, Sab:

" They are making it so we can drive onto the ice. The building inspector didn't like what they did after they finished the new wall so he was making them change what they put down because he thought it would get ripped up when guys started plowing the ramp to the ice. Was supposed to be done by this past week but it isn't yet."

Actually NHDES approved a slope beach at this site. There was considerable disagreement on the natural sediment movement in the area with many in the community insisting that the area accumulated sand and the NHDES maintaining that the area had a history of shoreline erosion that would make a sloped beach on the site unsustainable. The NHDES agreed to "let nature decide" and issued a conditional one-time approval. The description on the permit issued in 2001 read:

"Remove 11,256 sq ft of fill and place sand along 200 linear feet of shoreline to restore a 200 ft x 14.5 ft sloped beach area lakeward of a 217 ft x 21.5 ft perched beach with a 12 ft wide winter access ramp along the southern edge on 616 ft of frontage, in Nineteen Mile Bay, on Lake Winnipesaukee."

It contained a specific condition that specified that there was no long term guarantee of the maintenance of a sloped beach if natural processes removed it. The findings explaining the basis for the conditional approval read as follows:

"1. This project is classified as a major project per Rule Wt 303.02(o), construction of a public beach.
2. This project does not require Governor and Council approval since no portion of the project will be located within the public submerged lands.
3. The 200 ft x 14.5 ft sloped beach area was filled to construct Rte 109 with additional material added by the Town in 1996 to correct erosion problems along the shoreline.
4. Future replenishment of the sloped beach area will not be necessary provided Nineteen Mile Bay is a sand accumulation site as alleged by the town.
5. If, as alleged by the Wetlands Bureau, this site experiences sand erosion future sand replenishment would be environmentally damaging. Therefore future replenishment will not be permitted."

The slope beach was constructed lakeward of the current shoreline according to plan. Within a few years it was all gone.

Very interesting. So in 2001 DES approved a sloped beach saying that it probably wouldn’t last and if it didn’t DES wouldn’t approve it again, is that right ? So most recently the permit approved was for a perched beach since, as expected,
the sloped beach washed away. Do I have that right??

It was agreed that a wall would be constructed halfway up the originally proposed beach such that if the sloped beached did not erode the wall would not be obtrusive but if the sand did erode it would provide a hard stop and allow the sand area above it to be maintained as a perched beach. The bisecting wall is what you see at the shoreline today. That 2001 permit was the only construction permit issued. The rest has been repairs. There has been no other permit for new perched beach construction on the site.
