This Department of Environmental Services indicates the study would consist of studying, designing and permitting a solution for the incessant erosion of the Baker River's banks in the town of Warren, New Hampshire. The NH Geologic Survey provided a professional estimate of the costs associated with this study based on their experience with this river section. To confirm the estimate, a consulting firm with experience in similar projects was asked to provide a rough order of magnitude estimate. The low point of one estimate matched the high point of the second estimate at $400,000.
