Acworth Hazard Mitigation Plan updated 2013

Related Services:

Emergency Management

Project Summary:

Natural and human made hazards plague every town, but if they prepare in advance, the town can reduce or prevent damage.

The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission worked with the Town of Acworth to form the Acworth Hazard Mitigation Committee for the purpose of updating the 2008 plan to include most recent hazard events such as flooding and erosion as well as meeting the most current State and Federal planning requirements. The Committee brainstormed with Commission Staff on various ways to mitigate potential hazards such as replacing inadequate culverts to prevent road wash outs during storms.

The NH Homeland Security and Emergency Management contracted with the Commission to complete an update of the hazard mitigation plan for the Town of Acworth.
