An overview of the New Hampshire's Floodplain Management Program and the information and services it offers
News and Updates:
- March 12-16th is Flood Safety Awareness Week in New Hampshire. During this week all NH residents are encouraged to learn about their risk from flooding and take precautions to protect their families, homes, and businesses in the event of flooding. Learn more about simple things you can do today to prepare for a flood on our Flood Safety Awareness Week webpage.
- It is that time of year again when New Hampshire is most susceptible to ice jams and flooding. Ice jams can be unpredictable and happen very quickly. A handout regarding ice jam flooding and how property owners can protect their property from flooding is now available. More information about ice jams can be found on the NH Geological Survey’s Flood and Geologic Hazards Program page (see NH Silver Jackets/USACE CRREL Ice Jam Observer, which are slides from recent trainings).
- More than a decade after releasing its original report on mitigation, the National Institute of Building Sciences issued Natural Hazard Mitigation Saves: 2017 Interim Report. The 2017 Interim Report highlights the benefits of two mitigation strategies. Mitigation funding can save the nation $6 in future disaster costs for every $1 spent on hazard mitigation.
- The 2018 NH Water and Watershed Conference will be held on March 23, 2018 at Plymouth State University in Plymouth. The Conference is a key event for sharing water resource information. For 2018, the event will focus on regional environmental stresses and how we are adapting to new information, emerging issues, and current events affecting water quality and water supply.
