Workshop Flyer

Municipal staff, boards and commissions, and elected officials from the seven Atlantic Coast municipalities listed above are invited to attend a workshop on Thursday, April 13, 2017 to learn what other coastal municipalities are doing to address coastal flooding in NH and discuss shared regional resilience issues and needs.


This workshop is part of a new project led by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) and other Coastal Adaptation Workgroup partners, called New Hampshire Setting SAIL. The project seeks to support state and municipal implementation of the NH Coastal Risk and Hazards Commission (CRHC) report and recommendations, Preparing New Hampshire for Projected Storm Surge, Sea-Level Rise, and Extreme Precipitation (2016). Project partners will facilitate discussion to help coastal municipalities identify CRHC recommendations that address community-specific and regional vulnerabilities identified in the Tides to Storms Vulnerability Assessment (2015).

NH Setting SAIL project partners include: NHDES, Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Great Bay Stewards, Rockingham Planning Commission, Strafford Regional Planning Commission, UNH Cooperative Extension, and NH Sea Grant.
