Update to State River Corridor Map

The River Corridor and Floodplain Protection Program is pleased to announce the availability of draft enhancements to the Statewide River Corridor Map. Over the last three years, the program integrated over 2200 miles of field-based stream geomorphic assessment data into the existing statewide map. Updates to the map were informed by field determined valley wall locations, confining features such as bedrock, and sensitivity rating based on physical stream condition. Some changes are based on more recent and detailed map data (e.g., aerial imagery or LiDAR) were also included.

 

The draft river corridor map is posted on the Flood Ready Atlas and may be viewed in comparison to the applicable Statewide River Corridor Map Layer released in January, 2015.

 

The draft map will be posted on the Flood Ready Atlas over the next several months to encourage public review of the map updates and allow people ample opportunity to provide information that might further improve the map. Please send proposed map update information to ANR.WSMDRivers@vermont.gov and put River Corridor Map in the subject line. Information submitted should provide specifics about the location (e.g. map, screen shot, latitude/longitude) and a detailed description regarding the nature of the proposed map update.
