Flooding Information

New Hampshire Flood Safety Awareness Week
March 12-16, 2018

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: for 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:

Spring Road Restrictions as of 6 am, Monday, February 26

Each spring the Town of Belmont posts all Town roads to a maximum weight limit of 6 tons during the spring thaw per RSA 231:190-191. This year the ban begin at 6 am, Monday, February 26th and will run until conditions warrant lifting.

Local roads are especially vulnerable to damage in the spring due to the water freeze-thaw cycle. Imposing temporary weight limits can help to protect the roads during this time. Contractors, construction companies, parcel services, fuel services and solid waste haulers are asked to observe the posting by staying off soft road shoulders and reducing load weights.

Special permission may be given for "practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship" depending upon weather conditions and time of day.  However, Prior approval is required and a bond for the cost of restoring the road may also be required for any exceptions.

The following vehicles are exempt: firefighting equipment, winter maintenance equipment that is owned, leased or rented by state or any political subdivision of the state, and farm equipment. Violators may be charged with a "violation" under RSA 231:191,VI resulting in a fine of up to $1,000 along with restitution for damages and civil liability. Call the Public Works Department at 603-528-2677 with any questions.

Second Bridge Placed for Tioga Rail Spur Trail

The second of two covered bridges across the Tioga River is now in place, thanks to the efforts of a team of volunteers that has devoted countless hours to project over the last 10 years. The second bridge is located west of Great Brook Village and connects to the Belmont Village Spur Rail Trail which, for 40 years (1889-1929), provided railroad service to Belmont Village. The bridge provides a link to a largely overlooked element of the town’s past and is part of an ongoing project to establish hiking and biking trails along the former spur line as part of a Belmont  Village revitalization effort.  Roger Amsden, Daily Sun
