High Water Mark Initiative Launch Events – Rye, Hampton and Seabrook New Hampshire
High Water Mark signs have been installed to benchmark the 100-year coastal storm flood level and future projected sea levels at five locations. Launch events scheduled 6/27,6/28 and 6/29
Exeter, NH – The Rockingham Planning Commission, in collaboration with the towns of Rye, Hampton and Seabrook, Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (DNCR) NH State Parks, and the NH Department of Environmental Services Coastal Program announce High Water Mark Initiative Launch Events in coastal New Hampshire. High Water Mark signs have been installed to benchmark the 100-year coastal storm flood level and future projected sea levels at five locations. Many parts of NH’s coast experience seasonal flooding today and even larger areas may be impacted more frequently as sea level rises.
Raising awareness about flooding is of interest to many municipal stakeholders. We invite elected officials and local decision makers charged with addressing such flooding to join us for these launch events!
Launch events will be held at the sign sites on the following dates and times:
Hampton – Thursday June 28, 2018, 11:00am at the Hampton Transfer Station front gate off Hardardt’s Way
Seabrook - Thursday June 28, 2018, 12:30pm at the town boat launch on River Street
Seabrook - Thursday June 28, 2018, 1:30pm at Brown’s Lobster Pound on Route 286
Rye - Friday June 29, 2018, 12:00pm at Wallis Road near the corner of Route 1A
