DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The town of Durham has contracted with a consultant to examine any impact the Eversource Seacoast Reliability Project may have on Little Bay.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/2iIsX4A ) GeoInsight will review materials that the energy company has presented to the state, taking a particular focus on those pertaining to a proposed underground cable crossing under the bay.

Eversource says the project will help improve electrical reliability in the region to meet its growing demand for power.

The 13-mile electrical line would run from Madbury to Portsmouth along an existing utility corridor. An approximately one-mile segment would cross under Little Bay between Durham and Newington.

Eversource officials have maintained that the transmission cables will not harm the bay and the process for burying them below sea level is safe.
