2017 Flood Update 1/2/18

2017 Flood Follow Up and Update

The Selectmen attended a meeting with folks from the Army Corps of Engineers, NH Homeland Security, NH Dept. of Environmental Services, FEMA, the Governor’s Office, and NH Dept. of Transportation to discuss the Saco and Rocky Branch Rivers regarding what action should and could be taken, what are the potential funding sources, and the permitting processes. Since we are still waiting on a Federal Disaster declaration, all discussions were preliminary.

Some suggestions were made regarding the Saco River bridge on River St. and the town has engaged an engineer to follow through and report on some questions that were raised at the meeting. Also, an on-site inspection was made on the Rocky Branch River and were are awaiting word back from the various agencies on possible courses of action, the permitting processes, and possibly funding avenues.

As we learn more, we will keep you apprised of the situation.
