EVERSOURCE POLE REPLACEMENT INFORMATION
As part of our ongoing investments to deliver reliable energy to our customers and communities, Eversource will be replacing existing wooden pole structures in Campton, Thornton, Woodstock, Lincoln, Easton, Sugar Hill, Bethlehem, Dalton, and Whitefield, N.H. This work will be taking place within the existing right-of-way (power line corridor) of the X178 Line, a 115kV transmission line.
This transmission line is 49 miles long and is located between the Beebe River Substation in Campton and the Whitefield Substation in Whitefield, N.H. In total, 470 wooden H-frame structures will be replaced, and new conductor (power line) and fiber optic cable, known as Optical Ground Wire (OPGW), will be installed the length of the line. The project also includes replacing poles along the Streeter Pond Tap, a 225-foot-long power line that connects the U199 transmission line to the X178 line in Sugar Hill.
The Town Office has FREE COVID Tests available for residents.

CodeRED Emergency Notification System
The Sugar Hill Emergency Management Director (EMD), Fire and Police Departments, in partnership with the Grafton County Sheriff’s Department, has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System – an ultra-high-speed telephone communication service for emergency notifications. This system allows us to telephone targeted areas of the Grafton County Dispatch area in case of an emergency that requires immediate action (such as a missing child or evacuation notices). The system is capable of dialing thousands of phone numbers per hour. It then delivers our recorded message to a live person or an answering machine, making three attempts to connect to any number.
It is important that all residents and businesses within the dispatch area subscribe to the system to ensure proper notification can be made during an emergency. Subscription is quick and easy, and your information will remain confidential within our system and not be used for any other purpose.
PUBLIC NOTICE – Indian Brook Replacement – December 27, 2022
The Federal Emergency Management Agency hereby provides final notice of its decision to provide Public Assistance Program funding for actions located in a floodplain and wetland. Funding would be provided through New Hampshire Homeland Security and Emergency Management to the Town of Sugar Hill to reconstruct a bridge over Indian Brook on Streeter Pond Road. The proposed action is located at GPS coordinates (44.244278, -71.766457) and within a mapped special flood hazard area (100-year floodplain) and wetland. The proposed bridge would have a wider opening designed to accommodate the 100-year flood and would be in a slightly different alignment than the existing bridge to better convey Indian Brook flow.
The bridge is functionally dependent on its location over the brook thus the proposed action must take place in the floodplain and wetland. The project is not expected to result in loss of flood storage or exacerbate flood hazards to others. The action would conform with applicable state wetland regulations and local floodplain protection standards. Any potential project impacts would be mitigated by compliance with permit conditions issued by state and federal agencies, and any conditions required by the local floodplain administrator.
Alternatives considered included no action and replacing the bridge in-kind. Replacing the bridge in-kind was rejected because the Town determined the proposed design is superior and in conformance with New Hampshire stream crossing guidelines.
Maps of the project areas are available upon request to firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 718-3367. Comments about the project and its floodplain and wetland impacts can be submitted within 15 days of the date of this publication to:
Linda Hutchins, Environmental Protection Specialist
