Hopkinton, MA Stormwater Flooding Survey
As part of our work with the Town of Hopkinton, MA, to address flooding issues and enhance stormwater collection facilities, the town has issued a survey for Hopkinton residents, business owners, and property owners. This survey asks Town-affiliated individuals to describe their experiences with flooding in their neighborhood. Information gathered in this survey will be used to plan and prioritize flood mitigation projects in the Town. The primary focus of this work will be on stream crossings and culverts.
The survey closes Wednesday, February 22. Click here to access the survey.
In 2020, the Town of Hopkinton created a Hazard Mitigation – Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Plan (MVP Plan), which identified flooding as a component of two of the four main hazards affecting the Town. The Hopkinton MVP Plan can be found here.
After creating the MVP Plan, the Town applied for, and received, a Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Public input will be critical to identifying problematic areas for stormwater flooding and creating a plan for improving infrastructure in these areas through BRIC grant funding.
