Now Available: Spring Report of State Hydrology and Watershed Conditions

Concord, NH - The New Hampshire Silver Jackets Team, a state-led team of state and federal agencies and programs, announces the Spring Report of State Hydrology and Watershed Conditions Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol. Team members, including those from NHDES, United States Geological Survey, and the National Weather Service have worked together to compile information on the status of streamflows, groundwater conditions, lake levels, snowpack and flood potential heading into the spring snowmelt and runoff season. The report is designed to provide this important information to local emergency management directors and the public, in one place, so that they know how the spring runoff season may progress in terms of flood risk, enabling them to be better prepared.

The report also includes guidance for local officials and the public on factors to watch for as spring snowmelt proceeds, such as for ice jams, as well as web links to data and sites for additional information to consult as the spring season progresses. Information on the current status of flood mitigation programs, from the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and Office of Strategic Initiatives, is also included.

Municipal officials are especially encouraged to download a copy of the Spring Report of State Hydrology and Watershed Conditions Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol. Agency team members will monitor these conditions in the coming weeks as spring progresses, and are prepared to update this report in mid- to late-March if current predicted flood potential changes.

For more information, please contact Shane Csiki, New Hampshire Geological Survey, Shane.Csiki@des.nh.gov or (603) 271-2876.
