High Water Mark Photo Scavenger Hunt: Be Flood Aware!

Enter for a chance to win prizes!

Flooding is the most frequent, costly, and damaging disaster experienced by the State of Vermont and the Central Vermont Region. From the Flood of 1927 to Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, flooding has consistently been a threat to property, public infrastructure, and human life. The recent National Climate Assessment released by The White House predicts that flooding will only become more common in the Northeast. For these reasons and many more, CVRPC will be including an extensive Flood Resilience component in Plan Central Vermont. To kick-off this effort, we’re launching our High Water Mark Photo Scavenger Hunt!

High water marks provide continued education about flood risks so citizens can be better prepared to protect themselves and their property. There are many scattered throughout the Region! Can you help us find them all? The high water mark can be an official sign or an informal marking on a building, bridge, pole, etc. To enter the contest, take a photo of a high water mark and submit it to CVRPC in one of three ways:

If you are posting the photo to our Facebook wall or e-mailing it to us, please include a brief description of the high water mark’s location. Each person who submits a photo by June 30 will be entered into a random drawing to win one of two prizes: a $50 gift certificate to the Central Vermont restaurant of their choice or a season’s family pass to Wrightsville Beach! Two winners will be selected.


Just one of the many high water marks in Central Vermont!
