Floodplain Management Program

An overview of the New Hampshire's Floodplain Management Program and the information and services it offers

Flooding in New Hampshire often occurs as a result of heavy spring rains, runoff, ice jams, and coastal storms. Damage from flooding can be localized, but the cost of repairs is always high. A floodplain management program is an important part of community land use planning, and the services offered by OEP can help communities and homeowners prepare for and recover from flood events.
