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 linda.hutchins@fema.dhs.gov 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
Federal Emergency Management Agency, Boston, MA
