Natural hazards such as floods, high winds, lightning, tornadoes, earthquakes, and wildfires, impact Connecticut every year. These events destroy property, cause power outages, block roads, and can even cause injury and death.
A Hazard Mitigation Plan is a tool that helps a community to understand risks and to take specific steps to reduce property damage, injury, and loss of life. An example of such an action was the recent construction of the Meriden Green, which will help decrease the impacts of flooding along Harbor Brook.
The City of Meriden is in the process of updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan. Although the City has made significant progress reducing flood risk along Harbor Brook, additional efforts may be possible throughout the community to reduce flood risks as well as other hazards.
Please share your ideas for the plans using the following survey. If you have any questions, you may enter your contact information at the end of the survey.
