Hazard Mitigation & Climate Resilience Planning

Flooding in Tewksbury

Come learn with us! The Town of Tewksbury and the Merrimack River Watershed Council are holding a public meeting to discuss flooding issues in town, both informed by a recent town-wide survey, and engineering analysis. We will also be discussing green infrastructure as a solution to this flooding, with specifics on what green infrastructure is already in place and what may be implemented in the future.

A meeting was held at the Tewksbury Library on May 23rd:
- Slide deck for meeting
- Final Flooding Survey Results

The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) grant program provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to begin the process of planning for climate change resiliency and implementing priority projects. The state awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. Communities who complete the MVP program become certified as an MVP community and are eligible for MVP Action grant funding and other opportunities.
