Flooding Information

It is that time of year again when New Hampshire is most susceptible to ice jams and flooding.  Ice jams can be unpredictable and happen very quickly.  Flooding is the most common disaster event in New Hampshire. Spring is typically when flooding is most expected, but as many New Hampshire residents have experienced, flooding can occur at any time during the year. 

Review this handout on Ice Jams and Flooding for how property owners can protect their property from flooding. 

Everyone lives in a flood zonewhether it is a low-, moderate- or high-risk area.  Property owners do not need to live near water to be flooded.  It is important for property owners to know that homeowners insurance does not cover losses that are defined as "flood,” which in general is the overflow of water across land from any source including an ice jam. 

Flooding can even occur outside the mapped floodplain areas due to various and conditions and circumstances including ice jams.  Approximately 25 percent of flood insurance claims were filed for structures that were located outside of the mapped floodplain areas. 

The New Hampshire Floodplain Management Program at the Office of Strategic Initiatives (OSI) encourages property owners to consider purchasing flood insurance to help protect their property from flooding, which can occur as a result of an ice jam.  Generally, a flood insurance policy requires 30 days before it goes into effect.  Property owners are encouraged to talk to their current insurance agent and visit FEMA’s FloodSmart web site at: more information about flood insurance. Information can also be found on NH OSI’s Floodplain Management Program web site at: 

For more information about ice jams, please view the NH Silver Jackets team and the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers – Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) Ice Jam Observer Training slides from recent trainings, which are located on the NH Geological Survey’s Flood and Geologic Hazards Program page at:

Belmont Library celebrates 125 years of service to the community

Belmont Public Library celebrates landmark year
Belmont, NH – January 9, 2018 

In 1893, the New Hampshire legislature offered support to any town wanting a public library. Belmont Public Library opened 125 years ago on Main Street. For a while, official quarters were in the Mill’s Hose House, sharing space with the selectmen’s office. In 1927, George and Walter Duffy, owners of the Belmont Mill, made a generous donation of the current library building, dedicated February 4, 1928.

The Library staff and trustees have plans to celebrate the dual anniversaries throughout 2018. To start, all are welcome at the 90th Anniversary Open House on Saturday, February 3, 2018, from 1-3pm. There will be memorabilia and artifacts from the library history on display. The Library is looking for more pictures and stories about the building, so share a special memory at this event or any time you visit the library.

The Belmont Public Library is open six days a week and any time at, serving the community with books, digital resources, and cultural programming. In 2018, we are celebrating 125 years as a public library, serving ninety years from the Colonial Revival National Register building.

Town to Acquire Additional Protected Open Space

The Belmont Conservation Commission is pleased to announce that they have received notice that a $57,227 New Hampshire Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP) grant has been awarded to the Town in support of the Sanborn Trust conservation project. 

The Conservation Commission has been working closely with the Sanborn Family to acquire two parcels of land totaling 79ac off Depot Street at the Northfield Town Line for $125,000. 

The parcel is located on the Stratified Drift Aquifer which provides drinking water to both the Belmont Municipal Water System and Tilton/Northfield Aqueduct Co.  It includes a significant amount of frontage on the Winnipesaukee and Tioga Rivers, frontage on Silver Lake, and abuts the Town-owned 188 ac Tioga River Wildlife and Conservation Area. These combined protected areas provide a significant benefit to wildlife and natural value conservation in this area.

In addition to the LCHIP grant, the Commission has received a $7,500 Conservation License Plate grant and a one-time Aquatic Resources Mitigation payment from Eversource Energy in the amount of $42,495.80 towards this acquisition. The balance of the transaction will be paid using the Conservation Fund which receives 100% of the Land Use Change Tax when land comes out of Current Use and has been used by the Conservation Commission to purchase and maintain conservation lands.
